Thurston County Planning Commission Meeting

Thurston County Courthouse, Building 1, Room 152
2000 Lakeridge Drive SW, Olympia

Work Session: Comprehensive Plan Update – Chapter 9, Environment, Recreation & Open Space; Minor Zoning Corrections; PC Follow-Up Items.

The Planning Commission may set a public hearing for the Comprehensive Plan Update at this meeting.

The Comprehensive Plan is the long-term guiding document that outlines Thurston County’s goals and policies to manage growth over the next 20 years. Communities planning under the Growth Management Act are required to periodically update their comprehensive plans to account for changes over time. Chapter 9 on Environment, Recreation and Open Space provides an overview of Thurston County’s environment, natural hazards, and parks, and goals and policies guiding these areas.

New information has been included into this chapter reflecting the growing importance of water availability and habitat, climate change, and tools for resource protection. In addition, staff is recommending formatting changes for consistency with the rest of the Comprehensive Plan.
