Mayor's Message

 City of Altoona Logo
Welcome to the City of Altoona’s website. Our goal is to provide easy access to information about City services and events taking place throughout our community for our residents and visitors.

Altoona is located in scenic Central Pennsylvania, just off of Interstate-99.  We have an abundant supply of year-round recreational opportunities, a world-class University in Penn State Altoona, and, we are considered to be a premier shopping destination.  Our business community is growing, we offer excellent healthcare facilities and abundant, affordable housing. Altoona truly is a great place to live, work and play, raise a family and do business. 

It is an exciting time to be in Altoona, with the revitalization of our Downtown, development of new businesses and housing opportunities, and the addition of several new hotels - all indications that Altoona is on the rise. I invite you to explore our website, learn more about Altoona and take advantage of all we have to offer.  Our goal is to provide our citizens and visitors with a quality of life and services second to none.

Thank you for visiting and we look forward to serving you!


Matthew A. Pacifico
