A Message From the Mayor

Welcome to the new HarrisburgPA.gov. This site is continually undergoing upgrades and is designed to grow from feedback and suggestions provided by our citizens. This site provides accurate and easy to use information on our city’s services and programs. We hope that you find it useful and helpful. Your ideas are welcome!

Harrisburg is a town with a rich history that spans more than 200 years. As the capital of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, we attract thousands of people to our city to live, work and play. Our city is poised for a great economic recovery, and there is a palpable optimism on our streets as we look forward to the next four years under new administration.

Our city is on the move. Our future will be even greater than our past!

  • MY BROTHER'S KEEPER

    In February 2014, President Obama launched the My Brother’s Keeper (MBK) initiative to encourage communities to implement a coherent “cradle – to ‐ college ‐ and ‐ career strategy” for improving the life outcomes of all young people. The City of Harrisburg has accepted the challenge and chose to focus on: decreasing violence in our communities by ensuring young people are employed when out of school.

They prohibit discharging a weapon within the City limits except in cases of self-defense, carrying a firearm in a City park or playground, selling firearms during a declared state of emergency, possessing a weapon in public as an unsupervised child, and failing to report a gun lost or stolen.
