Request a City Proclamation

What is a Proclamation?

Proclamations are issued by the Office of the Mayor to provide an opportunity for the Mayor and City Commission to recognize exceptional events, groups or people. The goal of a proclamation is to recognize and celebrate the extraordinary achievements of city residents and non-profit organizations, to honor occasions of importance and significance to the residents of DeLand, and to increase public awareness of issues with the hope of improving the well-being of citizens of DeLand.

Proclamation Guidelines:

  • Proclamations recognize a day or week and in some cases the month can be recognized.  
  • We ask that requests be submitted three weeks prior to the due date. Some groups have suggested proclamations which may be submitted for consideration.
  • Any draft language submitted may be edited or revised without notice at the discretion of the Mayor’s Office.
  • As proclamations are within the discretion of the Mayor, some requests may not be granted.
