Community Development

The City of Marysville Community Development Department acts as technical staff adviser to the planning commission, hearing examiner, City Council and the public on planning and building questions. 

Our goal is to create a vibrant Marysville by promoting economic growth and healthy neighborhoods while protecting our natural environment.


  • Creating a one-stop shop for developers, citizens and property-owners to obtain information, permits, online payment of residential permits (new contractors must contact the Building Department at 360-363-8100 to set up their account) and assistance on all aspects of land use and land development
  • Enhancing customer service by providing easy access to staff and planning and building documents while streamlining the permit process
  • Facilitating compliance with the Growth Management Act of 1990
  • Providing consistency and predictability of land development from the initial planning stages all the way to final approval
