Comprehensive Plan

The City of Marysville Comprehensive Plan is a policy document that provides guidance for Marysville’s future growth and development. The Plan is designed and written for a planning period of 20 years, with a major update occurring every eight years and minor updates occurring annually, or as needed.  The City is currently updating the Comprehensive Plan for the planning period 2024-2044 as required by RCW 36.70A.130(5)(a).  We invite you to learn more about the update on the 2024 Comprehensive Plan Update webpage

The Plan reflects how our citizens want Marysville to look and function in the future, and provides the basis for achieving that vision. The Comprehensive Plan translates community values and vision into policies and regulations that direct the quality of growth, intensity and diversity of land use, transportation modes, street planning, public facilities and services, parks and recreation, and resource lands and critical areas.

Growth Management Plan

This plan provides a comprehensive review and update of the City’s original Growth Management Plan adopted in April 1996. Since adoption, the City has amended its plan through annual comprehensive plan amendment cycles and capital facility plan updates. There have been a number of amendments to the Growth Management Act that require the City to update its plans and policies. County actions in defining Marysville’s urban growth area require the city to designate specific land uses within its Urban Growth Area (UGA), including considering options to meet year 2035 population and employment forecasts for the Marysville urban area. Following a review of alternatives identified through the Snohomish County Tomorrow (SCT) process for the Marysville urban area, the City selected a moderate growth scenario.
