As is typical in many growing communities, the commercial vacancy rate in Uptown Marysville is extremely low. Because available space is difficult to find, we urge those considering opening a business to first contact a local realtor or the Union County-Marysville Economic Development Partnership.
In recent years, many people have expressed a desire to live in and around the Uptown District due to its thriving business community and amenities. Unfortunately, there are not many residential options currently available. To promote the development of more residential options, in 2016 the Union County-Marysville Economic Development Partnership engaged a consultant to complete an analysis of the feasibility of developing rental housing and condominiums in Uptown Marysville and Downtown Richwood (a neighboring community). The analysis determined that a market exists for multiple development alternatives, such as market-rate rental housing, mid-rise residential buildings, upper-level lofts, and townhouses. The complete analysis is available for download: Comprehensive Downtown Housing Analysis
