PROCLAMATION GUIDELINESRequest-a-Proclamation-Page-MLK-2013

NOTE: Proclamations have been tabled at least through July 14, 2020 due to the current public health emergency.

Proclamations are issued by the Mayor of Longmont to recognize outstanding local events, programs and nonprofit organizations that make Longmont a great city. Individuals, for-profit businesses, and organizations and events outside Longmont are not eligible for proclamations. National or regional events are eligible if there is a local partner.

Proclamation requests must: 
• be submitted by Longmont residents;
• not duplicate other similar requests; and
• not take sides in matters of political controversy, ideological or religious beliefs, or individual conviction.

Proclamations often are read at regular session City Council meetings (generally on the second and fourth Tuesdays of each month) and presented to representatives of the organization being honored. If you would like your proclamation to be presented at a Council meeting, there must be at least one representative in attendance to accept it. Proclamations also can be issued without reading or presentation at a Council meeting. Please be sure to note on the proclamation form if you would like to pick up your proclamation at the Mayor’s office instead of during a Council meeting.

The Office of the Mayor reserves the right to modify or edit any proclamation and to deny any proclamation request.


1. Please submit your request for proclamation no later than 30 days before the proclamation date. Your request will go through an internal review, so it is very important to meet this deadline and to fill out the form completely.

2. You can submit your Proclamation Request form online, or download a PDF version of the form and submit it to:

Proclamation Request 
Office of the Mayor
City of Longmont
350 Kimbark St.
Longmont, CO 80501

3. The body of a proclamation (the “whereas” sections) is limited to 150 words and 5 “whereas” sections. Please review these sample proclamations for ideas on how to word your own proclamation.
