The City Council shall appoint all members of the Historic Preservation Commission who shall live within the incorporated city limits. Each of the 7 Council members shall nominate 1 individual. Each member nominated will be subject to the approval of the majority of City Council. These 7 members should have demonstrated a special interest, experience or education in history, architecture or preservation. Unless no qualified persons are willing to serve, at least 6 members shall be professionals in the fields of history (including but not limited to urban planning, archeology, conservation, and historic preservation) or architecture (including landscape architecture).


Commission members shall serve for a term of three years.


The purpose of Marietta's historic preservation ordinance is to protect and enhance the historical and aesthetic attraction to tourists and visitors and thereby promote and stimulate business, and to provide for the protection, enhancement, perpetuation, and use of places, districts, sites, buildings, structures, and works of art having a special historic, architectural, cultural, or aesthetic interest or value, and to provide reasonable flexibility for property owners to improve and maintain their properties below certain thresholds and for special circumstances.
