The Community Development and Services Department is concerned with programs for community planning, zoning and building safety, and the enforcement of building codes and neighborhood health and safety standards. The department consolidates municipal functions dealing with the maintenance, operation and repair of city streets, traffic signs and signals, street lights, side- walks, sewers, storm drains, parks and municipal buildings. This is also the place to go for renting city facilities for special events. Our mission statement says it all: "To Plan, Build and Care for the City."

Planning & Historic Preservation Commission

Code Enforcement is responsible for preserving the quality and value of public and private property and maintaining a high standard of living by eliminating conditions that threaten the life, health, safety, and general welfare of the public. Code Enforcement responds to and investigates reported or observed violations of the Marysville Municipal Code involving any of the following:

  • Overgrown vegetation
  • Accumulation of debris, brush, trash, junk, recyclables, lumber, furniture, tools
  • Discarded appliances
  • Abandoned or broken equipment
  • Graffiti
  • Autos, campers, trailers used for human habitation
  • Violations of City zoning code
  • Non-compliant signage
  • Housing and building code violations
  • Illegal construction or occupancy
  • Construction and related installations without a building permit
  • Dangerous and unsafe buildings
  • Occupancy of substandard structures
  • Hazardous or unsanitary environmental conditions

If you wish to report a possible violation, be prepared to give a clear description of the problem, referring to one of the conditions listed above, along with the specific street address of the location involved. You may remain anonymous, but we will not be able to contact you for further information, should that be needed.

Please note: Code Enforcement is not authorized to respond to immediate life-safety situations or threats. Call 911 for emergencies. Code Enforcement also does not respond to private civil or personal issues, or violations of covenants, conditions and restrictions (CC&s) of homeowner or neighborhood associations.
