Marysville says no to supervised drug consumption sites

Finding it “in the best interest of (the city) to prohibit new supervised drug consumption facilities from locating or establishing such a use” in the city at this time, the Marysville City Council on Monday unanimously imposed a six-month moratorium on such facilities.

The moratorium provides time for further study and public engagement as the city considers regulations that address siting for such facilities, including the option of prohibiting them entirely. 

Residents and business owners have expressed concerns about negative community impacts associated with such sites. The City Council action found that without adequate review, new supervised drug consumption facilities could create potential safety issues for the community.

The Planning Commission has scheduled a public hearing on this topic for 7 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 9, at Marysville City Hall, 1049 State Ave. The Commission will accept public comment and may take action then. Its recommendations will be forwarded to the City Council.
