A proclamation is a document signed by the Mayor that proclaims a special event or the recognition of a person or group, usually for a specific time period (for example Aurora Arbor Week or Women’s History Month). A proclamation must relate to the city of Aurora, or to an organization within the city, or to a statewide or national issue affecting Aurora, and must be in the general interest of our citizens. Requests for proclamations are generally received from clubs, organizations, nonprofit groups and individuals.
Only one proclamation per year will be issued per subject matter.
Proclamations that relate to a profit-making venture or are of a political nature will not be approved.
Proclamations can be submitted to the Mayor’s office by mail, in person, by fax or via the form below. A Request for Proclamation form must be completed for each proclamation. All requests for proclamations must be received at least four weeks in advance of the date of acknowledgement. Any requests received fewer than four weeks in advance may not be fulfilled. Approval of request for proclamations is not automatic. The Mayor reserves the right to decide which proclamations to issue and how proclamations are presented.
