MARIETTA – In the face of the public health crisis, the City of Marietta would like to remind residents, contractors, and businesses that the City has the ability to process all permits through its web-based site plan review and permit application process called Sages. Since April 2018, the process has been available fully online.

This plan review and permit application process no longer requires the applicant to visit multiple City departments for plan approvals. Citizens and Contractor’s will no longer be required to visit Marietta City Hall to submit applications and plans as they will now be able to submit these documents in a digital format through the City’s official website. The website for the online plan review is located at

The City’s SagesGov platform provides a single online location from submission, plan review, fees, permitting, mobile inspections and certificate of occupancy. It creates standardized, paperless building, site, and trade permit information throughout the life cycle of a project until a certificate of completion or occupancy is issued all from a single online location. It allows for improved email and online communication between citizens, builders, contractors and staff that produces higher quality submissions of permit applications and plan reviews and a faster approval process of permits and inspections.

The web-based site plan review and permit application requires Citizens and Contractor’s to create a secure online account in order to submit the plans and allows them to communicate with staff through the application by receiving notifications throughout the plan review process.
