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! Also, check out our Facebook page and follow us on Twitter #thecityofhbg!

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!

Support Citywide Initiatives

  • 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.

  • PROTECT HARRISBURG

    The City of Harrisburg asks for your financial support in establishing a fund to defend our common sense gun ordinances against the NRA. 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.

  • CITY HALL BEAUTIFUL FUND

    The City Hall Beautiful Fund overseen by the Foundation For Enhancing Communities is a fully tax deductible fund aimed at enhancing the interior and exterior of the MLK Gov’t Center.

    Businesses or individuals interested in donating to the fund can make a tax deductible donation by  sending a check to: The Foundation for Enhancing Communities, 200 North Third Street, P. O. Box 678, Harrisburg, PA 17108-0678.

    Inquiries can be sent to info@harrisburgpa.gov

  • 2015 COMPREHENSIVE PLAN

    The City of Harrisburg endeavors to be a community balancing the preservation of our historic buildings, strong neighborhoods, and environmental assets with an accommodation for social, cultural, and economic growth and development that improves the quality of life for residents, businesses, commuters, and visitors by adopting a new Comprehensive Plan.
