Thurston County seeks public input on comprehensive plan and development code amendments


The Thurston County Board of Commissioners invites public participation in the review process for proposed comprehensive plan amendments and development regulation changes for the 2024-25 dockets.

A 20-day comment period for the community planning and economic development code dockets has been initiated from February 23 to March 14 at 5 p.m.

During this time, residents are encouraged to review the proposed projects and offer written comments on which proposals they believe the county should prioritize for the upcoming period.

After the public review, the Thurston County Board of Commissioners will select and prioritize projects for each docket based on various factors, including priorities, staff capacity, and budgetary constraints.

These selected projects will then be forwarded to the Thurston County Planning Commission for further review.

The Planning Commission and the Board of County Commissioners will conduct public hearings on the approved projects before the final regulations are adopted.

Interested individuals are encouraged to visit the Thurston County website to learn more about the proposed projects and the 2024-25 Comprehensive Plan and Development Code Docket overview and timelines.

Those wishing to provide written comments can do so by filling out the Comprehensive Plan Docket comment form or the Development Code Docket comment form.

Written comments can be sent to Andrew Boughan via email or mailed to:
