The Village was incorporated on July 12, 1941. Mariemont has approximately 3,000 residents.
Mariemont is distinguished from similar communities by a unique electoral process called Town Meeting. Town Meeting is a unique nonpartisan system through which nominations for Village offices are made. To be a part of Town Meeting, you need only be a resident of voting age. Complete with the colorful and historically dressed Town Crier, Mariemont Town Meeting has meetings whenever appropriate, including a “state of the Village” meeting annually. The Village offices include Mayor, Treasurer, Clerk, and six Council persons – one representative from each District of the Village. Though candidates have run independently of Mariemont Town Meeting, overall this system has proved well-suited to the needs of our Village.
Council meetings are scheduled for the second and fourth Mondays of each month at 7:30pm. The meetings are held at the Municipal Building. Visitors are always welcome.
Mariemont is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and was designated a National Historic Landmark in 2007. Information about the Village’s unique history is available through the Mariemont Preservation Foundation. Visitors are welcome in the Foundation’s Archives Room, located at 3919 Plainville Road, on Saturdays from 9:00am to 12:00noon.
In 2008, Mariemont was named a "Top 10 Great Neighborhood in America" by The American Planning Association.
For nearly 20 years, Mariemont has also been recognized as a "Tree City USA" community. This program, sponsored by the Arbor Day Foundation in cooperation with the USDA Forest Service and the National Association of State Foresters, recognizes communities with progressive forestry programs (i.e. lots of great looking trees)!
