Proclamation Requests

Proclamations are provided by the Mayor's office as a courtesy to residents of Overland Park or the Kansas City metropolitan area. These public service documents are strictly honorary and are not legally binding. All proclamations will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis. The Mayor's office reserves the right to decline any request for a proclamation or to make exception to the following guidelines.

Proclamations recognize and are issued only for a specific day, week, or month.

Proclamations are issued for nonprofit organizations with citywide, regional or statewide interest. Proclamations will not be issued to endorse or promote a private, for-profit business that competes with similar for-profit businesses, or to endorse or promote a partisan political position or candidate.

Send Requests

Requesters are encouraged to submit a proclamation request in writing six weeks in advance of the requested date. The request should be accompanied by a draft of the proclamation. Any draft proclamation language submitted may be edited or rewritten at the discretion of the Mayor's office.
