Mariemont.com is an independent website that has no affiliation with the Village of Mariemont Government. It is a Web based ‘village voice’ to serve the interests of Greater Mariemont. As a noncommercial community asset, our mission is to be a ‘one stop repository’ of fair and objective information about the social organizations, events, happenings, businesses, community services and local government.
To augment the free exchange of information and provide an editorial platform for Greater Mariemont, the Web site has a blog. Postings on the blog include a wide variety of topics including featured businesses, performances, events, awards, appointments, schools, sports, meetings, real-estate statistics, medical matters, editorial opinion and so on.
The opinions expressed on the Blog are those of the author(s), and do not necessarily represent the view of other contributors to the Site.
Our editors steer clear of village politics. However, we are obligated to present a balanced and cogent discussion of viewpoints that stem from various meetings and issues affecting all residents in Greater Mariemont. And we always invite outside qualified editorial content that may offer viewpoints that may, at times, be contrarian but which stimulate open debate and produce a running stream of insightful comments on the blog.
We are an information asset that listens to the concerns of all the citizens of our great community.
The site has evolved as a collaborative effort by eight individuals including:
