Arlington and Marysville apply for industrial center designation

Planning for 20,000 jobs by 2040

On April 4, the Growth Management Policy Board will be briefed on the proposed regional designation of the Arlington-Marysville manufacturing industrial center.

PSRC staff is in the process of reviewing the application and preparing a designation report, in coordination with staff from both cities.

The center is located in the cities of Arlington and Marysville in Snohomish County, east of Interstate 5 and the Tulalip Reservation.

The area currently contains nearly 8,000 jobs, and the cities are planning for 20,000 jobs by 2040.

The cities have spent the past several years working together to conduct a market study and prepare a subarea plan.

The growth board will have the opportunity to ask questions and provide feedback to staff. A final recommendation on the designation will take place at a future board meeting. 

At the April 4 meeting, the growth board will also continue work on VISION 2050, including:

  • Initial discussion of principles and outcomes that will guide development of a preferred growth strategy alternative 
  • Providing feedback on proposed changes to chapters on Development Patterns, Transportation, Economy and Public Services
