Exemption, preliminary and final plats and detailed plans information
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.
