Proclamation Requests and Guidelines

Proclamations are ceremonial in nature and are provided by the mayor's office as a service to City of Gastonia residents, employers and City employees, with the goal of honoring and celebrating events and increasing awareness of noteworthy issues among citizens. These public service documents are strictly honorary and are not legally binding. Issuance of a proclamation does not necessarily constitute an endorsement by the City of Gastonia government.
 
All requests for proclamations must be made in writing to the City of Gastonia City Clerk's Office at least three (3) weeks prior to the date when the proclamation is needed.  To request a proclamation please use the Proclamation Request Form.
 
Proclamations are reviewed on a case-by-case basis to ensure they adhere to guidelines. For consistency, and to ensure equity, the Mayor will only issue a proclamation that complies with established Guidelines.
