The purpose of this program is to identify and register vacant buildings. This registration is to be used as a tool to protect and preserve our neighborhoods from becoming blighted through lack of adequate maintenance and security issues at vacant structures. The City of Marysville believes the presence of vacant buildings can lead to neighborhood decline, create public nuisances, contribute to lower property values, and discourage potential buyers from purchasing a home or business in neighborhoods with vacant properties.
All vacant buildings must register with the City of Marysville Engineering Department in accordance with the Vacant Building Ordinance. A Vacant Building Registration form must be completed for each vacant building.
