Mayoral Proclamation Request Form

Proclamations are provided by the Mayor’s Office to be of service to Indianapolis residents. The intent of proclamations is to recognize, celebrate, and honor local events and/or increase awareness of issues for the citizens of Indianapolis. Proclamations are carefully reviewed by the Office of the Mayor and are strictly honorary and are not legally binding. The Office of the Mayor reserves the right to decline any request for a proclamation as well as the right to make exceptions to the established guideline procedures. 

Guidelines and Procedures:

  • Proclamations must hold city/county significance; outside requests without a local connection will not be processed.
  • Any draft language​ submitted may be edited or revised without notice at the discretion of the Mayor's Office.
  • Proclamations are not issued to welcome events such as conferences or conventions. 
  • Issuance of a proclamation does not constitute an endorsement by the Mayor.
  • Requests must be submitted 4 weeks in advance of the requested completion date or they will be denied.
