The Gateway Marietta Community Improvement District will host a virtual forum on Thursday August 12 from 6 – 7 p.m.

Information on how to access the forum is available by following this link to the GMCID’s flyer.

The purpose of the forum is to allow residents and stakeholders in the area “to view and comment on proposed potential ideas for placemaking and signage in the district.”

The announcement on the City of Marietta website states: “The public input obtained will help prioritize the area’s needs and shape future enhancements funded by the Gateway Marietta Improvement District.”


This is the second virtual meeting about the placemaking and signage project.

In the news release for the first meeting held on March 24, 2021, Caroline Whaley, the GMCID administrator said, “Over the last month we have collaboratively worked with a number of local stakeholders to discuss strategies for placemaking and wayfinding signage to enhance our vibrant and growing community. It is equally critical that area residents share their thoughts on these exciting options and offer feedback that is reflective of our thriving and diverse community.”
