The City is pleased to recognize the people, programs and events that make Austin unique by issuing proclamations and other recognitions.

Requests for recognitions to be presented at a City Council Meeting are taken on a first-come, first-served basis, and should properly come from a Council office. If a Council presentation request comes in from a citizen, the Proclamation Coordinator will inform the requestor that they will need to reach out to the respective Council office to make arrangements. Once we receive an email from the Council office requesting the recognition, then it will be added to the proclamation roster for that meeting.

Request a proclamation.
