Rezoning

Rezoning Requirements


When a property owner seeks to change the zoning of their land, they must submit an application for rezoning to the Planning and Zoning Division. After verifying that all the appropriate information has been provided and the required fees paid, Planning and Zoning staff schedules the application for hearing before the Planning Commission and City Council. The staff also analyzes the application and provides this information to both bodies.

Hearings & Meetings


All Planning Commission and City Council zoning hearings are conducted in the Marietta City Council chamber located on the lobby level of City Hall at:
205 Lawrence Street
Marietta, GA 30060

Planning Commission meetings are typically held the 1st Tuesday of each month at 6 p.m. City Council meetings are typically conducted the 2nd Wednesday of each month at 7 p.m. Zoning hearings are held in addition to the regular City Council agenda.

Post-Hearing Voting
The Planning Commission hears the case and then votes to make a recommendation to the City Council for disposition of the application. The City Council makes the final decision to approve or reject the rezoning request. The Council may also place special stipulations or restrictions on approved rezonings.

Rezoning Application


We have provided information and items which the applicant must submit on or before the application deadline.

Failure to submit any item, or any additional information that might be requested, on or before the deadline will result in the application being held until the next scheduled meeting of the Planning Commission.
