Welcome to Marysville


Marysville, the county seat of Yuba County, is one of California's historic cities. It's history as a community goes back to the Gold Rush days. The city is strategically located 40 miles north of the state capitol of Sacramento where Highways 70 and 20 intersect. It is served by two railroad lines, two highways, a regional airport, a public bus line, and is the center of a broad agricultural and outdoor recreation area.

Marysville is home to the Yuba-Sutter Gold Sox, a community based, professionally run summer collegiate baseball team, and is the host for the Horizon Air Summer Series, a season long competition among a select number of summer collegiate teams.

Marysville, along with Yuba City (it's neighbor across the Feather River) has long been one of the leading agribusiness centers of California. Other business comes from retail sales, manufacturing, rice farming, stock raising and mining. Beale Air Force Base (to the east) also contributes significantly to the community's economy. Outdoor enthusiasts enjoy hunting, fishing, boating, swimming, golf, tennis and many other sports in Marysville and the nearby countryside and mountains.

Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan

The City has recently received a grant from the Sacramento Area Council of Governments to develop a master plan that would address the ease of movement of pedestrians and bicyclists within and through the City.  This master plan will also consider the connectivity of pedestrian and bicycle traffic with the surrounding areas of Yuba County and Yuba City.  The City is currently soliciting proposals from potential consultants to develop the plan.  This process should be completed by the first of the new year, after which the selected consultant will start input from the community and groups that have specific interests in this project.  For additional information, contact Marysville City Services. 


Safe Routes To Schools Plan

The City, in cooperation with Marysville Unified School District, has just completed a Safe Routes to Schools plan covering Covillaud and Kynoch Elementary Schools, and McKinney Intermediate School.  This study identifies preferred routes for students to take as they bicycle and walk between the schools and their homes in the surrounding neighborhoods.  The study also looked at the congestion around each of the schools during the busy morning and afternoon times that students are dropped off and picked up each day.  The study then identified though physical improvements that can be made to improve student safety, and to encourage students walking and biking to school.  In addition to the physical improvements, the study also identified school programs that be used to educate students in safe biking and walking habits, and to encourage parents and students to walk and bike more.
