Climate Action Planning

Thurston Climate Mitigation Plan

The Thurston Climate Mitigation Plan is a continuation of the efforts of the Thurston Regional Planning Council (TRPC), Thurston County, and the cities of Lacey, Olympia, and Tumwater to prepare for and reduce the impacts of climate change. This plan presents a framework for climate mitigation in our region. It includes actions these local governments can take to make measurable progress toward greenhouse gas emission reduction goals, while maintaining—and even improving—quality of life in our region.

Thurston Regional Planning: Sustainable Thurston

The Sustainable Thurston project began in early 2011 with a simple question for the Thurston Region's quarter-million residents: How do you want your community to look, function, and feel in 2035?

Online and in person, thousand of engaged residents helped the Sustainable Thurston Task Force craft a regional vision of sustainable development that encompasses land use, housing, energy, transportation, food, health, and other interconnected issues. This community conversation identified a vision for a vibrant, healthy, and resilient future, as well as the actions and responsibilities to achieve it.
