Downtown Revitalization


The future of Uptown Marysville is as bright as ever. Efforts are underway to enhance the business and residential environment in Uptown Marysville by retaining and attracting small businesses and entrepreneurs, supporting the development of loft and upper-level residential units, exploring comprehensive marketing and tourism opportunities, and by creating positive partnerships that promote an attractive and unique Uptown District.

Despite the recent recession, Uptown Marysville continued to witness extensive public and private investment, further evidence of its true economic vitality. Since 2008, the Uptown District has received more than $500,000 in private investment and an additional $1,400,000 in infrastructure improvements including new sidewalks, crosswalks, street lights and banners, traffic signals, benches, flower pots and hanging baskets. The City of Marysville also recently completed construction on a new City Hall and Uptown Fire Station, and completed restoration of the Town Run. In addition, a new Uptown Greene, known as Partners Park, opened in May 2015. These improvements, together with the dedication of residents, business owners and community leaders, will ensure that Uptown Marysville continues to flourish for generations to come.

Like the residents of this city, Uptown awaits you with open arms. For more information about opening or expanding a business in Uptown Marysville, please contact us at 937.642.6279 or visit the Uptown Marysville website.
