Please request the visit as far in advance as possible, but at least two weeks ahead of time. We will consider all requests, but we do ask your understanding that Mayor Faulconer's very busy schedule may make it impossible to arrange last-minute visit requests.

If changes need to be made once a meeting is confirmed, please contact us at your earliest opportunity so that we can make the appropriate changes to the Mayor's schedule.

If you will need parking instructions for you vehicle or motorcade, please let us know well in advance so that we may work with the appropriate departments to accommodate you.

At the time of the visit, we ask that you arrive at least ten minutes early. Please identify any security accompanying you on your visit; we may introduce them to the Mayor's Security Detail prior to entering the Mayor's Office or Conference Room.

Following the visit, if any follow-up is necessary, please correspond with our office directly.
