Marysville convenes new Growth Management Task Force

Mayor Jon Nehring has created and appointed a new Mayor’s Task Force on Growth Management to consider and provide input into the future of Marysville. As the second largest city in Snohomish County and one of the fastest growing in Washington state, Marysville expects continued growth and must comply with the Growth Management Act while city leaders aim to maintain our sense of community. 

“I am excited about the formation of this task force, whose input will play a critical role in informing how we grow and build our community in a way that respects and responds to our community values,” Mayor Nehring said. 

Task force members appointed by the mayor include Marysville citizens Peter Condyles, Dan Hazen, Kristin Kinnamon, Rickelle Pegrum and Rob Robertson. Other task force members are Planning Commissioner Steve Leifer; City Councilmembers Mark James, Steve Muller and Michael Stevens; and Master Builders representative Dylan Sluder. Gloria Hirashima and Jeff Thomas, the city’s Chief Administrative Officer and Community Development Director, will provide staff support. 

The task force will generally meet monthly during 2020. Its first meeting is at 4 p.m. Monday, Feb. 3, at Marysville City Hall, 1049 State Ave. 

Subjects the task force may be asked to weigh in on include:

  • neighborhood character and values, 
  • mixed-use development,
  • high-density residential development, 
  • transportation networks and utility capacity, 
  • industrial center implementation, 
  • downtown redevelopment, and 
  • future population and employment targets. 

Task force findings will be used to help the City establish scope and policy for the required update of the Marysville Comprehensive Plan due in 2023, and to update other planning documents such as the Downtown Master Plan and amendments to development codes.
