If you have ever wanted to help shape your community’s future, now is the time to get
involved. By law, every city and county in Washington state is about to undergo a two-to-three-
year planning process called the “Comprehensive Plan” update which will result in a ten-year
plan that describes the long-term vision for growth, infrastructure, and services for that
jurisdiction. The resulting plan articulates a series of goals and policies intended to guide the
day-to-day decisions of elected officials and staff.
The Local Good Governance Coalition (LGGC) is an alliance of nine Thurston County based
nonprofit groups, including TCAT, and three associate individuals that have come together to
collectively shape our community. The LGGC will be hosting three general information sessions
this year to help you and the rest of our community be involved in shaping our future, with a
focus on climate change and affordable housing. We want equitable policies enacted and
The first session “Comprehensive Plan Update 101” will be held virtually via Zoom on July 14 th at
6:30 PM. As a participant, you will learn the basics of the Comprehensive Planning, and also
how you can help set the standards for climate change and housing for our future. In order to
get a detailed Comprehensive Plan that goes beyond vague business-as-usual goals, we need
you and other community members to be involved.
