Citizens are invited to attend a free fall quarter Marysville University program that will provide a forum for sharing comments and ideas for the Marysville Strategic Plan, a document that will guide the community's future. The Mayor, City Council and Directors are in the process of developing a comprehensive Strategic Plan, and the public's input is a key step in drafting it.

The Strategic Plan will feature an overall vision and mission, as well as:
  • Specific vision for attracting and retaining businesses and jobs (economic development
  • Long-term financial stability
  • High quality and cost-efficient public services, and facilities to meet community needs and demands, and
  • Creating a community that is healthy and inviting to citizens, businesses and visitors.

Goals in the Strategic Plan will address these visions with objectives that support the community's values. At the forum, participants will be able to use interactive "pulse pads" during a poll to vote on prioritizing actions that will form the Strategic Plan. The poll will provide real-time feedback and display results on a large screen.

Free refreshments will be provided. Please RSVP by Friday, Nov. 14 to reserve your seat to Executive Assistant Leah Tocco at (360) 363-8091, or email . For more information contact Community Information Officer Doug Buell at (360) 363-8086 or email
