TULALIP — Marysville Mayor Jon Nehring will deliver the “State of the City” address for 2011 to the Greater Marysville Tulalip Chamber of Commerce on Jan. 28.
Nehring’s first “State of the City” address as mayor will serve as the main event for the Chamber’s Business Before Hours meeting at the Tulalip Resort Casino from 7-9 a.m.
Nehring’s address will review the city’s accomplishments in 2010, lay out its plans for long-term financial stability and preview some developments that citizens can expect this year.
Among Nehring’s priorities are maintaining public safety first and foremost, improving traffic circulation through road construction projects such as the completion of Ingraham Boulevard last year, and developing parks on properties already owned by the city.
Nehring has also expressed his desire to protect Marysville’s streams and water resources without putting undue burdens on its citizens, as well as to maintain transparency and accountability in the city’s government and to broaden its tax base through expanded economic development efforts. Among those efforts would be a focus on creating a manufacturing job center in the Smokey Point area through master planning, as well as attracting and retaining a mix of businesses that could create a more walkable, pedestrian-friendly downtown and waterfront area.
