The Town of Harrisburg and Mayor Steve Sciascia welcome you to the 2018-19 Harrisburg Magazine. This guide is full of information, from elected government officials, to Town parks, to the history of Harrisburg. You can learn about things to do, upcoming and ongoing Town events and projects, local attractions and more.

Located in southwest Cabarrus County, bordering Mecklenburg County and the City of Charlotte, the Town Steve Sciascia, Mayor of Harrisburg is in a prime location for residential and commercial growth. The Town was incorporated in 1973 and is governed by a seven-member council and mayor. Harrisburg Town Hall, built in 2004, is located on Main Street in the emerging neo-traditional Town Center development on N.C. Highway 49. Harrisburg's close neighbors include Charlotte Motor Speedway in Concord and the University of North Carolina-Charlotte, just minutes from Town Center. Harrisburg is served by the Harrisburg Fire Department, which was brought under the Town in 2006, and contracts with the Cabarrus County Sheriff's Department for full-time police protection. Harrisburg has developed into one of the top 10 most affluent zip codes in the Charlotte region, with a population of more than 16,000 people. Harrisburg is projected to be one of the top five fastest growing municipalities in North Carolina over the next 10 years, according to the NC Office of State Budget and Management. Harrisburg will be the best small town in North Carolina, based on low density housing, excellent economic opportunities, a safe living environment and efficient and effective municipal services. Amenities, such as excellent recreational programs, adequate open space, attractive shopping opportunities, a diversity of restaurants and a connected system of roadways, sidewalks, greenways and bicycle lanes, will continue to enhance the quality of life of the Town. These services and amenities will be provided while retaining reasonable tax rates and debt levels. In 2008, the Town of Harrisburg adopted this as its vision, supported by the following core values: 1. We value our identity as a small town and believe that everything possible should be done to maintain that identity, even as our population grows. 2. Having a connected system of open space, bikeways, greenways, sidewalks and a pleasing variety of recreational opportunities enhance the quality of life of Harrisburg. 3. We believe that a renewed emphasis on economic development, especially the creation of highly skilled and well-paying jobs, which will support an attractive balance of commercial and residential components in our tax base, is critical to developing a Town characterized by sustainable growth. 4. Our appeal as a small town is based partly on the natural beauty and history of the area, which requires us to engage our citizens in a continuing program of preserving and enhancing that beauty and of preserving our historical assets. 5. We believe in supporting citizen engagement and involvement in all matters relating to the well-being of our Town, and we believe that your Town government should actively seek ways to encourage open communications with our citizens.

Sincerely Yours,

Steve Sciascia Steve Sciascia Mayor of Harrisburg

WHERE IS HARRISBURG? Nestled in the southwest corner of Cabarrus County in North Carolina, Harrisburg lies in the Piedmont region, which is the middle section of the state. The area is simple to get to by car, bus, plane or train. One of Harrisburg’s biggest strengths is its proximity to Charlotte and its interstate road system. The town’s central location in the state and proximity to Interstate 85 and Interstate 485 creates easy access from other destinations in the mid-Atlantic/southeastern region. Interstate 77 is just 15 miles west and Interstate 40 just a 30 minute drive north. NC Highway 49 passes through the center of Harrisburg, leading northeast to Asheboro and southwest to the hub of Charlotte.

RICH HISTORY Beginnings Many colorful stories surround the history of Harrisburg. According to the Cabarrus Genealogical Society and other local sources, a pioneer likely supplied the original name for the town - Query's Quarter. Newly-elected President George Washington recorded in his diary that he passed through Query's Quarter while traveling by stagecoach through the southern states in 1791. Agriculture thrived in the new town and several grist mills were built, including Pharr's Mill, known for grinding corn and grain and equally infamous for social gatherings and the site of a delightful swimming hole on Rocky River. Rail, Retail & Commerce The town's name change was derived from the Robert Harris family and his descendents. Mr. Harris was established on land of his own in 1766 and, with the advent of rail construction in the 1850s, the depot took the name of the landowner from whom the right-of-way was purchased. Harris Depot became Harrisburg with the construction of the local post office in 1874.

Harrisburg Depot location in the South East corner of Robinson Church Road

The railroad has historically played a key role in the town's development, as it continues to do today. The first retail establishment in Harrisburg was opened before the Civil War and many more followed with the rail line through Harrisburg. Merchants sold everything from groceries, clothing and tools to mule harnesses and plows.

Religious Heritage To support the growing population's need for easier access to worship, Harrisburg Presbyterian Church was formed in the early 1900s. The church structure was completed for the congregation in 1904. A Baptist congregation established Oak Grove Church in 1906. The African American congregation moved from a one-room building with no floor or chimney to the structure built in 1978 for 350 members.

Becoming a Town On March 28, 1973 the North Carolina General Assembly ratified a bill to incorporate the Town of Harrisburg. A Mayor and Town Council were appointed pending elections held in May. Town Hall was completed in 1980 and the town's waste water system was completed in 1985. n

HARRISBURG PARK MASTER PLAN A fresh look has been created for Harrisburg Park following a detailed process with the help from Stewart Engineering Inc. This process began in March 2017, wrapping up seven months later in October 2017, and has had extensive involvement from the public, partners and stakeholders throughout the community. The results of the plan are considered a preferred vision of what members of the community value as the most important amenities for the park. These values were captured through a combination of surveys, three public poling sessions, two public engagement meetings, as well as the 2010 Parks and Recreation Master Plan. At the July meeting, Council approved a contract to Benesch Engineering to complete the engineering and construction documents for Harrisburg Park. The proposed Town-owned recreation center is not part of these plans. The Construction Document phase will take approximately 7-9 months, with intentions to move forward with bidding the project for construction in spring 2019. The proposed construction timeline, once a contract has been awarded, is 15-18 months.

Some of the proposed amenities for Harrisburg Park are community/recreation center, amphitheater, six multi-purpose fields including cricket, walking/biking trails, splash pad and senior center/programming.

For project updates and a complete detail of the master plan, please visit customer-service/project-updates/parks-andrecreation-projects.

The Golden Egg Hunt

Farmers Market Shoppers


Harrisburg offers a calendar year full of family-friendly community events


Santa at the Christmas Tree Lighting

One of the area’s most popular Easter egg hunts excites kids of all ages and centers on the search for a 'golden egg' among the 5,000 plastic, colored eggs placed by the staff of the Parks and Recreation Department throughout Harrisburg’s area parks prior to the event. For several days, families are encouraged to visit the parks and hunt for the eggs during normal park hours. Plastic colored eggs will have a small piece of candy or a small toy that you may keep. If you’re lucky enough to find one of the 100 Golden Egg, with a ticket in it, you will be able to redeem it for a grand prize at a community celebration which concludes the Easter event. There will be fun Easter activities including vendors, the Easter Bunny, face painting, food, inflatables, food trucks and more! This is a great way to get outside and enjoy the community parks with the entire family!

Harrisburg is one of the fastest growing communities in the Charlotte Region Cabarrus County and the Town of Harrisburg partnered to create the Harrisburg Area Land Use Plan to provide a framework for future development in the Harrisburg area. This plan is updated every five to 10 years and is intended to convey the community’s 20-year vision for the future of Harrisburg. The plan is aspirational, yet grounded in the realities of market conditions, natural constraints and infrastructure limitations. The updated plan seeks to preserve the family-friendly character of the Town, while re-energizing the Harrisburg Town Center and protecting unique natural areas and agricultural lands in the Reedy Creek Watershed. The ideas, observations and opinions of community members are important in crafting a plan that is customized for the Harrisburg area. Because the success of the planning process depends on the participation of citizens and stakeholders, there have been community information meetings and surveys. The final community meeting dropin was held in April 2018. This meeting offered the final opportunity for residents to provide input in crafting the plan. Afterward, the Harrisburg Area Land Use Plan went before the Planning and Zoning Advisory Board and then Town Council. The updated 2010 Harrisburg Area Land Use Plan was approved by Town Council on June 11, 2018 and the Cabarrus County Board of Commissioners on July 17, 2018.

DO YOU FEEL LIKE YOU NEED TO MAKE SOME CHANGES! In this fast-paced world, it’s easy to get over stressed and over worked as the demands of life can become quite overwhelming. For some, experiences from the past cause complications that make it difficult to focus on the present moment. I utilize a Cognitive Behavioral Therapy approach to focus on learning relaxation skills, learning how to mange intense emotions, and challenging some of the unhelpful thinking styles that are a result of the challenges in life.
