The town of New Castle announces that the final draft of the sign code is ready for community review and comment. During the past year, several public meetings with the Planning and Zoning Commission were held.

Also, there were two open house meetings that were facilitated by Elyse Ackerman, who is the regional manager of the Department of Local Affairs.

So far, many citizens of New Castle and residents of Garfield County have expressed their opinions about what should and should not be included in the sign code. Since all people who do business in New Castle as well as anyone who lives in New Castle are affected by new regulations, it is very important that people attend a community meeting on Wednesday, Jan. 12, at 7 p.m. in the Town Council Chambers located at 450 W. Main St. in New Castle.

If you cannot attend, please send your written comments to Planning and Zoning Commission Chairman Kevin O’Brien, PO Box 90, New Castle, CO, 81647 before Jan. 12. The draft sign code can be reviewed by accessing the town’s website, which is newcastlecolorado.org.

Contact Tim Cain at the town for additional information at 984-2311.
