Welcome to Marion, Iowa!

AbouAssaly, Nick

Marion is one of the Midwest’s fastest-growing cities. We pride ourselves on being the best place in Iowa to raise a family and grow a business.

I am proud to call Marion home and value our charm and small-town atmosphere, as well as our progressive, forward-thinking ambitions. Marion is a place where people work smarter, set lofty goals and strive to achieve the very best for their families and their community. Here we reach higher!

Whether you enjoy music in the City Square on a warm summer night, Christmas in the Park in December, the nationally-acclaimed Marion Arts Festival in the spring, or walking the trails on a crisp fall morning, it's no wonder we were named one of the 10 Best Towns for Families by Family Circle Magazine.

The goal of our city council, our city administrators, and our economic development partners is to continue to develop Marion as a business-friendly community while working with our school districts (two of the finest in the state), churches, service organizations, and citizens to ensure we continue to offer our residents the quality of life they value.

On behalf of all of those who work hard to make the city of Marion a great place to live, thanks for stopping by. We hope you’ll come back soon.                                                                   

Nick AbouAssaly, Mayor
