A proclamation is an official document issued by the Mayor to commemorate a specific time period (ex. day, week, or month). It brings recognition or awareness to an issue, cause, milestone, or noteworthy event that is relevant and important to Durham. Proclamations are strictly honorary and not legally binding.
Anyone may make a proclamation request, however, proclamations must have a direct relationship to Durham City/County residents, events, achievements, services or noteworthy causes. The decision to issue a proclamation is done completely at the discretion of the Mayor, and he or she reserves the right to deny requests for proclamations at any time.
Complete the Proclamation Request Form. Please include a working telephone number where you can be reached for possible questions or details regarding the information you have provided.
Requests can also be mailed or hand-delivered to:
Administrative Specialist, 101 City Hall Plaza, Suite 2400, Durham, NC 27701
NOTE: Because of the large volume of requests, we cannot honor phone requests.
