About two years from now, plan to attend a grand opening for Marysville’s new Civic Center.
Last night the City Council approved the award of a $47.6 million construction contract to Lydig Construction, Inc., of Bellevue, to build a new consolidated facility housing Police, Jail, Municipal Court, City Council chambers, City Hall, Community Development and Public Works Engineering offices. The Civic Center will be located on a six-acre site along Delta Avenue between 5th and 8th streets west of Comeford Park. Construction will begin in January and is expected to take about two years.
“We’re excited to move forward with this vision that has been discussed at the city for decades,” Mayor Jon Nehring said. “The Civic Center will offer residents and visitors a one-stop shop for city customer service functions and an attractive new public space in Marysville’s redeveloping downtown core.”
The Criminal Justice Tax that Marysville voters approved in 2018 is helping to fund the public safety portion of the project. Another large chunk of funding will come from the sale of existing city buildings after city staff moves into the new facility.
