Community Information

Marysville, a city of 69,940 people, is a code city with a mayor-council form of government. It is located five miles north of Everett on the north crescent of the Snohomish River Delta. Ideally situated near mountains, lakes, rivers, and the Puget Sound, Marysville endeavors to maintain its unhurried charm while experiencing rapid growth. Annexation of surrounding areas, families based at Naval Station Everett, the draw of the Tulalip Tribes Casino, residential expansion, and a marked increase in commercial and light industry have contributed to the growth. Services such as an extensive parks system and a strong utility infrastructure have expanded to meet these and future needs. Marysville is known to many as the "Strawberry City". The berry is grown abundantly in this region and is commemorated each June during the Strawberry Festival. The Marysville School District is recognized regionally for its education programs that harness the talents of its students and prepare them with skills for the future.
