Plan Review

About the Plan Review Process

In the plan review process, a Fire Protection Analyst evaluates a site's accessibility for the general public and emergency vehicles, as well as fire hydrant location and building construction (new and renovation). He or she then checks for an occupancy's compliance with the Life Safety Code, the Georgia Accessibility Code, the State Fire Codes, and any other applicable city ordinances.

The Fire Marshal's office also reviews the plans and calculations for fire alarm, fire sprinkler, and alternative fire protection systems in commercial and residential applications; fire protection systems must be permitted separately from the main building permit (see the City of Marietta Sprinkler Ordinance for details).

Beginning January 2, 2020, new projects will be entirely managed through SagesGov from the comfort of your office!  The applicant will be able to submit an application and plans for review, pay fees, print a construction permit, request inspections, and print their Certificate of Completion without ever having to come in to the office.
