The Communications team includes the City’s communication manager, community affairs officer, creative designer/web specialist and Welcome Center receptionist. Together, they are responsible for communicating with the public through a variety of channels including:

Downtown Newark Partnership

The community affairs officer is also the administrator for the Downtown Newark Partnership (DNP). The DNP is a private/public partnership dedicated to the aesthetic, economic, cultural and social enhancement of downtown Newark. The Partnership has created a unique environment in which the City of Newark, businesses, residential communities, and the University of Delaware can work together toward a common goal: The ongoing enhancement of downtown Newark with mutual benefits.

CGI Communications Partnership

The City of Newark recently partnered with CGI Communications, in cooperation with the National League of Cities and United States Conference of Mayors, to develop a cost-free community showcase program that will allow Newark to better promote tourism, educate and welcome future families and residents, recruit new business and more. The partnership opportunity includes the development of high-quality videos on a variety of topics of interest to Newark and/or its constituents – all at no cost to the City. Costs are absorbed through sponsorship by local businesses and in concert with local non-profits, all of which are solicited by CGI.
