Marysville Climate Vulnerability Assessment

The City of Marysville was awarded the Washington State Department of Commerce’s Climate Program – Early Planning Grant to conduct a climate change Vulnerability and Risk Assessment. Here you can find information on how the City is researching and adapting to climate-related extreme weather. This page contains a project description and timeline, as well as engagement opportunities and contact information.


Global climate change presents an ever-increasing threat to the health and well-being of Marysville residents. Extreme weather events like droughts, flooding, and extreme heat pose risks to our health, infrastructure, natural areas, and economy.  

The City is preparing for climate-related extreme weather events by developing a Climate Vulnerability and Risk Assessment. This assessment will help us understand the risks to our community and our ability to adapt and withstand those risks, and will guide us in how to address them. The results will inform our work on the Environmental Element for the 2024Comprehensive Plan Update.


This project began in January 2023 and will continue until June 2023.

Here is a timeline of key events:  

  1. January-April: Research climate risks and conduct assessment
  2. February-March: Host listening sessions and community survey
  3. April-May: Presentations to Planning Commission and Council
  4. May-June: Council action and publishing
