Detailed plan checklist
Design guidelines for four-sided architecture
No lot or parcel in the city of Marietta shall be combined, subdivided or have a boundary line revision without obtaining prior approval from the city. In those instances in which staff determines that the proposal does not require the dedication of additional street right-of-way or street improvements, or utility installations other than house connections, the applicant shall be required to submit an exemption plat. Properties cannot be divided or combined to create a split-zoned lot. Rezoning of property would be necessary to assure that all parcels of property are assigned only one zoning designation.

Preliminary plat checklist
Final plats shall conform substantially to the preliminary plat or detailed plan, as approved. If desired by the applicant, the final plat may constitute only a portion of an approved preliminary plat or detailed plan provided that such portion conforms to all requirements of these obligations.
