Dear residents and visitors,
Welcome to the City of Hazleton’s website. I trust that you will find our site helpful as you learn more about our city’s services and Hazleton itself.
The goal of this site, which was funded several years ago through grants awarded to the city’s Office of Economic and Community Development, is to provide information about Hazleton and northeastern Pennsylvania. By browsing this site, you’ll find out just some of the reasons why Hazleton is special.
Built upon a foundation of coal mining and evolving to meet the diverse needs of today’s residents and businesses, Hazleton is part of Luzerne County, Pennsylvania. Hazleton can claim an excellent location near the crossroads of Interstates 80 and 81 and easy access to other major transportation routes, in addition to a workforce that is consistently highly rated. These factors give us a unique advantage in economic development. If you are considering locating your business in Greater Hazleton, please review the Economic Development section of this site to learn more.
