The Marysville City Council opted to postpone a decision on a planning committee recommendation to rezone a 3 1/2 acre property east of Marysville from suburban residential to multi family, allowing for construction of 22 duplexes near the new water tower. Neighbor concerns to the south regarding water runoff issues had forced developers to revisit the request. Earlier the city had approved funding a drainage study, and will install two tubes, in an effort to improve water flow. Council on a 6-2 vote Monday chose to wait until that work is complete, and will bring the request up again at the March 24th meeting.
