Economic Development Survey
Robust economic development within the City is important to ensuring the well-being of, and business and employment prospects for, current and future City residents. We would appreciate your input on economic development in Marysville and invite you to share your thoughts by taking the following survey.
The goal of economic development and planning is to assure growth is guided in a way that complements the community’s vision. The City of Marysville, like many areas in the Puget Sound, has experienced rapid population and job growth over the past decade. Population is expected to continue to grow, steadily increasing to nearly 100,000 people by 2044 (current population is 73,780). Opportunities to work locally have also been increasing. The current workforce of 15,000 is expected to grow to roughly 35,000 by 2044 largely due to industrial development in North Marysville.
The City has the ability to influence the nature of growth through its initiatives and the types of policies and the incentives it implements. This advisory survey supports the development of the City’s Economic Development Element, a planning document used to establish community economic development goals. The final document will be adopted by the City Council and be used by the City administration as it carries out the plan.
Thank you for your help in guiding the City’s future by participating in this survey. If you would like to attend future Planning Commission or City Council meetings where the Comprehensive Plan and the Economic Development Element update is discussed, and decisions will ultimately be made, please sign up to receive notices through the City website by clicking on this link.
