Mayoral Proclamation Information

Mayoral Proclamations may be issued for historical, cultural, civic celebrations, non-profit organizations and achievements, or events with significance to the City of Auburn. Auburn residents can request a Mayoral Proclamation to commemorate milestone birthdays of 75 years or more. Proclamations may also recognize a special day, week or month.

All requests must be submitted, at least two weeks prior to the event. Requests, other than birthdays, will go through an internal review process. Proclamations taking sides in matters of political controversy or addressing personal convictions will not be issued.
