Community Calendar Policy

Community Notices & Announcements

A portion of the City of Newark’s website is dedicated to the posting of community notices and announcements and will be referred to as the “Community Calendar.” The Community Calendar is limited to announcements and notices intended to inform residents about upcoming community events. “Community event” means any charitable, educational, cultural or recreational event taking place in the City of Newark. Submission of events by members of the public constitutes participation in a limited public forum.

All City of Newark Community Calendar submitters shall be clearly identified by their event submissions. Anonymous posting of events shall not be allowed. All event postings shall be accompanied by valid event submitter contact information including a name, email address and phone number. Each request by a person or entity to have the city post an event in the calendar must be received by the city no less than 15 days prior to the date of the event.

Requirements & Restrictions

Notices and announcements shall be limited to
  • The name of the group, organization or person sponsoring the event
  • A concise description of the event
  • Date of the event
All event postings shall be moderated by a city-authorized calendar moderator, who shall review and approve all event submissions for conformance to acceptable event standards.

The city reserves the right to restrict or remove any content that is deemed a violation of this Community Calendar policy or any applicable law. Events submitted to the City of Newark Community Calendar containing any of the following forms of content shall not be allowed for posting:
  • Profane language or content
