Newark Partnership

The Newark Partnership was established to assist the Downtown Newark Partnership in carrying out its new and larger strategic vision for promoting prosperity and community enrichment. The Community Engagement Initiative assists in organizing and facilitating meetings of the Downtown Newark Partnership Strategic Planning Committee.

In collaboration with the Institute for Public Administration, the Community Engagement Initiative also works to promote a dialogue on the future of the City of Newark, Delaware, through a workshop series that focus on exploring opportunities to advance Newark’s prosperity, community enrichment, and economic vitality. The first Newark Futures Workshop was held on June 13, 2018, and engaged 100 community members in a presentation of national best-practice models of city-university-business partnerships and an interactive discussion focused on collaborative visioning, priority areas, and community-based assets and opportunities for Newark’s future.

Upcoming meetings of the Downtown Newark Partnership Strategic Planning Committee are posted on the City of Newark Calendar.
