Smokey Point has been a source of debate for some time. The debate is over which city, Marysville or Arlington, Smokey Point belongs to. As it stands, Smokey Point’s borders are I-5 in the east, 123rd in the south, the railroad tracks in the west but in the north the borders are still undefined.
Smokey Point is zoned 74.7% industrial making it the most concentrated industrial designation within Marysville‘s city limits. It may be difficult to understand the industrial zoning while traveling through, however, manufacturers can be seen in business parks off the main arterials.
The remaining zoning designations for Smokey Point are commercial at 18%, multi-family at 7% and single family rounding out the last 0.3%. With only 0.3% being zoned for single family, Smokey Point has scattered residential communities but if you travel south to Shoultes or north to Lakewood there are many nice communities.
