Economic Development

Marysville is Snohomish County’s second-largest city (pop. 66,773 according to the U.S. Census Bureau 2015 Population Estimate), a diverse, hard working and progressive community committed to improving the community's prosperity and livability through fostering an economic climate conducive to business. Economic development provides the means to meet that commitment.

Prospective companies need only to look at the economic and political environment built on successful partnerships with neighbors the Tulalip Tribes and City of Arlington, along with Marysville's strategic location and well-trained workforce, to know that opportunities are evident.

From our downtown district along Ebey Waterfront within the pristine Snohomish River Estuary and our east side foothills neighborhoods, to the panoramic mountain and clear water views of the Puget Sound and the former strawberry fields in the north now ripe for new manufacturing and industry, Marysville is a place where family matters. Great neighborhoods. Year-round recreational opportunities and events. Active, engaged community members who enjoy the great outdoors that epitomizes the Pacific Northwest lifestyle. We invite you to experience Marysville – live, work, play.

For all its greenery, Marysville also has a lively economic business climate that blends small business, corporate headquarters, aero space companies, light industrial and manufacturing. Two keys areas central to Marysville's economic future and primed for new corporate investment:
  • Smokey Point Master Plan area - at 675 acres, the largest remaining I-5 concentration of available commercial/light-industrial land between the U.S.-Canada border and state capital of Olympia
  • Downtown Master Plan for revitalization of downtown and Ebey Waterfront area
For your next venture, there is no better time to make it Marysville.
