The Redevelopment Authority of the City of Harrisburg’s mission is to eliminate blighting conditions that inhibit neighborhood reinvestment, to foster and promote sustainable neighborhood revitalization and urban renewal, and to facilitate new business and housing development.  Toward that end, the Redevelopment Authority:

  • Prepares and implements comprehensive redevelopment plans
  • Assembles real estate for redevelopment
  • Is empowered to borrow money, issue bonds and make loans
  • Can condemn property (eminent domain) in furtherance of redevelopment activities

Mt Pleasant

Established in 1949, the Redevelopment Authority partners with the City of Harrisburg’s Department of Building and Housing Development to carry out the City’s urban renewal and revitalization strategies. To achieve its goals, the Redevelopment Authority may itself redevelop real estate, but it primarily engages in public/private partnerships to leverage local, state, and federal funding for new business and housing development.
