Welcome Message From the Mayor


A warm welcome from the City of Patterson. The City Council and I are committed to serve you—both residents and visitors – at the highest level possible. Our focus is on the safety and well-being of our citizens. We also strive to provide opportunities for families to be involved in the community and to provide support for local businesses to grow and prosper. We invite you to be a part of our place of choice.

The Patterson Art Gallery and Eagle Station offer opportunities for citizens to be involved with the arts (visual and performing). The Historic Preservation Commission has been formed to revitalize the business district on West Railroad Avenue and is in the process of building a Pocket Park for citizens and visitors to relax as they enjoy the Historic District.

Patterson was named as one of America’s Top 50 Places to Raise Children, and our school system offers quality education, top-rated on the state and national levels.

A small rural town, but Patterson is a growing community. We invite you to experience our community’s hopes and aspirations and share your own as well. Various projects throughout the City all point to a bright future for Patterson, a place of choice.

Again, welcome to the City of Patterson.


R.D. Thomas, Jr.
