Mayor Chirico is honored to issue proclamations to recognize individuals, groups or events for their unique contributions to the City of Naperville. Proclamations are issued to honor exceptional achievement and special events or actions within the community.
Proclamations may be presented to an organization at a City Council meeting or picked up at the Mayor's Office. There is a limit of two proclamations per City Council meeting.
To be presented at City Council meetings, proclamations must have a local significance. Proclamations noting national days or months of celebration or honor must tie directly to an organization with a physical (brick-and-mortar) presence in Naperville.
National days or months of celebration or honor that do not have a physical presence in the community are still eligible to be issued a proclamation; however, the document will not be presented at a City Council meeting.
All proclamations will be limited to one 8.5” x 11” page (200 words).

- Name of the organization or individual being honored and reason for proclamation
- Contact information including name, email, phone number and address
- Whether the request is for presentation at a City Council meeting or will be picked up at the Mayor’s Office
