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. The Program has made over 800 homes lead-safe since April, 1995. Hundreds of young children now live in housing made lead safe through our program.

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.
