Proclamation Policy

The City of Cedar Park will issue a proclamation at no charge to recognize an individual(s) or an organization(s) for their outstanding achievement in the community, special event(s), or day(s) that are noteworthy or historically significant.

Proclamations will not be issued for commercial purposes, such as the opening of a new business, a new service, a new product, or a new professional service. This also includes business anniversaries that are less than 100 years.

In addition, proclamations will not be issued for deceased persons, retirements, birthdays, weddings, or family reunions.

Individual(s) or organization(s) seeking proclamations year after year must provide new information for the proclamation. Individual(s) or organization(s) who request the same proclamation year after year with only date changes will not be issued new proclamations.


A request for a proclamation must be made in writing to the City Secretary's Office at least 2 weeks prior to the date that will be proclaimed or the date the document will be presented. Each request must be accompanied by the name and telephone number of a person who can answer additional questions about the proposed proclamation.

Individual(s) or organization(s) seeking a proclamation must accompany the request with:

  1. Facts about the subject matter - enough information to make 4 points.
  2. The specific title of what will be proclaimed
  3. Date of the proclamation and date to be presented

The Mayor of Cedar Park will make the final decision on whether a proclamation is issued or not. No proclamations are issued to non-residents or for a non-Cedar Park event unless specifically approved by the Mayor of Cedar Park.

All proclamations must be picked up at the City Secretary's Office unless prior arrangements are made.

The original proclamation will be presented to the individual(s) or organization(s) who requested it at no cost. A $20 administrative fee will be charged for each additional copy of the proclamation that is requested.

Any proclamation to be presented to a city board, commission, or department must be approved in advance.
