MARYSVILLE — The city of Marysville's official Web site went live March 7 with a series of short video clips, designed to give visitors, newcomers, businesses and residents a virtual video tour of the Marysville-Tulalip area with few clicks of the mouse.
The city joined the Greater Marysville-Tulalip Chamber of Commerce in entering into a multimedia partnership with CGI Communications, Inc., to showcase the community by developing this series of Web-streamed videos, that are now viewable on the city's Web site at marysvillewa.gov. You can click on the Marysville Video Tour Book graphic to select the video of your choice to watch.
The streaming video segments run approximately one minute each, and include a welcome from city of Marysville Mayor Dennis Kendall, as well as information on quality of life, recreation and activities, economic development, education, the Marysville Healthy Communities Project, accommodations and other topics that market the Marysville and Tulalip communities to prospective visitors, newcomers, businesses and residents. The videos will also be available soon on the Marysville-Tulalip Chamber's Web site, at www.marysvilletulalipchamber.com.
"This online series of Web clips is a great way to market to the rest of the world the quality of life and diverse, growing economy that make the Marysville-Tulalip area an outstanding place to live, work, invest, play and recreate," Kendall said.
This program is being offered in partnership with the U.S. Conference of Mayors and Association of Washington Cities. The videos were shot at no cost to the city, according to city of Marysville Community Information Officer Doug Buell. Local businesses purchased advertising space, as well as their own video ads, in the backgrounds seen surrounding the video player screens as the movies stream.
