A Message From the Mayor

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 in the midst a great economic recovery.  There is a palpable optimism on our streets as new businesses open, new residents move in and Harrisburg regains its stature as one of the premiere capitals of our nation.

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

The City of Harrisburg is creating a new master plan for Reservoir Park, one of the City’s most scenic and prominent park sites. The eleven month process will examine ways to reinvigorate the park through site improvements and the creation of public / private partnerships.

The Lead Hazard Reduction Demonstration Program at the City of Harrisburg – Department of Building and Housing Development offers assistance to low and moderate- income families, as well as Rental Property Owners, in making their homes lead-safe for children.

In February 2014, President Obama launched the My Brother’s Keeper (MBK) initiative to address persistent opportunity gaps faced by boys and young men of color and ensure that all young people can reach their full potential. The initiative seeks to organize and capitalize on the commitment of community leaders in order to reach that goal.

The City of Harrisburg, in keeping with its ongoing efforts to serve all members of the community, is updating its Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) transition plan and self-evaluation.
