Welcome from the Mayor

Mayor Jon Nehring

Nehring2019webAs Mayor of the City of Marysville, I am pleased to welcome you to our city. Thank you for visiting us and taking the time to learn more about our community. From our quaint old downtown neighborhoods to our eastside homes with panoramic views of Puget Sound, our wide variety of shops, our schools and pristine parks, and our community services and inherent volunteerism, Marysville has something for everyone to discover and enjoy. 

Marysville is a wonderful place to visit, live, play or work. It is Snohomish County's second-largest city with a population of more than 67,000, and was the fastest growing city in the state of Washington in 2015. Marysville's vibrant charm is exceeded only by the remarkable people who call it home. While times have changed, the friendliness and hospitality that recall a simpler time remain the heart of our community.

These features complement our business community. Marysville is a magnet for local and regional shoppers in north Snohomish County with several large retail centers. These include the new Marketplace in Lakewood with anchor stores Dick's Sporting Goods and Hobby Lobby; Lakewood Crossing with anchor stores Costco, Target and Best Buy; and Gateway Center at 116th Street Northeast with anchor tenants Winco Foods and Kohl's. Marysville is also home to Sound Harley-Davidson, an attraction unto itself modeled after H-D's original factory in Wisconsin and a meeting place for riders to explore the community's back roads and participate in charity rides. Several new restaurants have located here offering fine and casual dining options, and three new hotels are on the way.  

As a full-service city responsive to its citizens, Marysville takes care of its needs for today while building a better tomorrow, and is well-prepared for the changes ahead that affect our citizens and the region. The city offers its residents and businesses:

  • extensive police and fire protection
  • a city-run jail
  • water and sewer availability at competitive rates
  • city-operated garbage pickup
  • an expansive library
  • numerous recreational programs, and
  • acres of lush, green parks to enjoy.

I invite you to explore our website - and our city - to discover all that our area has to offer. Experience Marysville: Live, Work, Play.
