A Message From the Mayor

Welcome to 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 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!
