The city of Marietta is accepting nominations of land for donation or sale for future parkland, greenspace or recreation purposes. Land that is donated in whole or in part is tax deductible in accordance with IRS regulations for donations to qualified governmental units.
Marietta City Council appointed the Citizen’s Advisory Committee for Marietta Parks (CACMP) to evaluate and make recommendations on properties submitted in conjunction with planning efforts being undertaken with the parks bond voters approved in 2009.
Landowners – or individuals that know of landowners – willing to donate or sell their property may make nominations for donations, sale or a combination. Contact the Marietta Parks, Recreation and Facilities Department at 770-794-5601 for a nomination form or download the form from the committee’s blog at mariettaga.gov/blogs/cacmp. Also at the blog, citizens can follow the activities of the CACMP as the planning and development of park, recreation, trails and greenspace projects progresses.
