City Devel­op­ment

We are thank­ful and hon­ored to serve you.


The City Devel­op­ment Depart­ment pro­vides oppor­tu­ni­ties and ser­vices to res­i­dents by aid­ing in busi­ness expan­sion and reten­tion while recruit­ing new indus­tries, and work­ing with the com­mu­ni­ty to build over­all qual­i­ty of life to attract new residents.

The City Devel­op­ment Depart­ment has the fol­low­ing com­po­nents which aim to serve the cit­i­zens of Mar­i­on in the best way possible:

Neigh­bor­hood Asso­ci­a­tion Coordination

The City of Mar­i­on is for­tu­nate to have a neigh­bor­hood asso­ci­a­tion pro­gram. Each asso­ci­a­tion cov­ers much of Mar­i­on, how­ev­er, there is still room for new asso­ci­a­tions to form, and adjust­ments to be made to the cur­rent ones. To start a neigh­bor­hood asso­ci­a­tion in your area or learn more about the cur­rent one, please con­tact our Neigh­bor­hood Asso­ci­a­tion Coordinator.

The Neigh­bor­hood Asso­ci­a­tion Coor­di­na­tor is the point of con­tact in City Hall who aims to improve the qual­i­ty of life in Mar­i­on by means of empow­er­ing neigh­bors. This facil­i­ta­tor lis­tens and address­es neigh­bor­hood con­cerns, edu­cates cit­i­zens, and finds ways for col­lab­o­ra­tion to hap­pen. When a par­tic­u­lar neigh­bor­hood does not have a point of con­tact, the Coor­di­na­tor will learn about the neigh­bor­hood and search for a point of con­tact. The Coor­di­na­tor stays informed of city sys­tems of work, and aims to empow­er res­i­dents to con­tin­ue to improve their neigh­bor­hoods through the gov­ern­men­tal sys­tems in place.

Mar­ket­ing & Com­mu­ni­ty Relations

We focus all efforts on improv­ing over­all qual­i­ty of life and morale in the City of Mar­i­on from a mar­ket­ing and com­mu­ni­ty rela­tions stand­point by work­ing in part­ner­ship with respec­tive depart­ments as well as out­side groups and indi­vid­u­als, all while mar­ket­ing and pro­mot­ing these efforts and the City of Mar­i­on as a whole.

The Direc­tor of Mar­ket­ing & Com­mu­ni­ty Rela­tions con­ducts and man­ages ini­tia­tives toward ful­fill­ing the above mis­sion while serv­ing a promi­nent role in com­mu­ni­ca­tions — large­ly web­site and social media con­tent devel­op­ment and management.

City Devel­op­ment Leadership

The Direc­tor of Devel­op­ment plans and directs the pro­grams and ser­vices the depart­ment pro­vides for the cit­i­zens includ­ing pol­i­cy devel­op­ment, grant pro­grams, data col­lec­tion, and more. The Direc­tor coor­di­nates activ­i­ties with oth­er agen­cies, works close­ly with the pub­lic and com­mu­ni­ty orga­ni­za­tions, and attends var­i­ous meet­ings regard­ing com­mu­ni­ty devel­op­ment, serv­ing on the Rede­vel­op­ment Com­mis­sion and CReED Board.
