Community Beautification Program

The Community Beautification Program is no longer accepting applications for projects completed in 2024.  Missed the application deadline? To be notified of future Community Beautification Grant opportunities, please complete the online notification interest form.

The CBP provides funding to Marysville neighborhoods, community groups, and local businesses (businesses located from the south city limit to 8th Street and the west city limit east to Alder Avenue) that want to work together to beautify their neighborhood or other areas of the community.

Applicants can apply for grant funding of up to $7,500 for potential first-time grant recipients or $5,000 for those who have previously received CBP funds. 

Applicants who have been awarded funds and submitted for reimbursement in two previous grant cycles are not eligible for funding. Grant funds can be used for completing community landscaping efforts, neighborhood cleanup of common or publicly visible areas, or other projects that help enhance the quality of life for the community. Businesses can apply for funding for exterior improvements such as facade, sign or other beautification projects. 

Well-kept neighborhoods and business areas provide benefits to both residents and visitors. They are safer, healthier places that the City of Marysville is proud to support.
