    (not a professional teacher) That phrase would not sound natural to most native speakers. There are some phrases using "look" that convey the idea you're after. You could say "If you're in my town, please look me up". A slightly different, but related, phrase is "look in on", meaning "to visit to make a check on". "If you're going to Timbuktu, please look in on my mother, and see how she is".

    Re: Look Upon

    upon
    as a preposition is pretty equal as soon as

    Upon your arrival in the town give me a ring please.

    This is upon you. (~this depends on you, it's up to you)

    But look upon is phrasal verb I think
    Don't look upon me like I am a teacher.

    to look upon means to look by way of seeing someone or something in some particular way which is always stated in the sentence with the words look upon. ( if I was clear )

    If you plan to visit my state please look upon me not only such as business partner but a friend (fan) as well. So please drop by at my place. It will be an honour to receive you in my office.
