The content on the Thurston County website is currently provided in English. We are providing the “Translation” for approximately 10 languages. The goal of the translation is to provide visitors with limited English proficiency to access information on the website in other languages. The translations do not translate all types of documents, and it may not give you an exact translation all the time. The translations are made through an automated process, which may not result in accurate or precise translations, particularly of technical and legal terminology.

The Beaver Creek Land Use & Rezone Amendment or CPA-20 is a citizen initiated Comprehensive Plan Amendment that would amend the land use and zoning designation from Rural Residential/Resource—One Dwelling Unit Per Five Acres (RRR 1/5) to Rural Resource Industrial (RRI). Included in the applicants request is the conservation of 168 acres to open space.

The Rural Resource Industrial (RRI) is to provide areas where industrial activities and uses that are dependent upon agriculture, forest practices and minerals may be located. The district also allows such uses that involve the processing, fabrication, wholesaling and storage of products associated with natural resource uses.

The proposal includes eleven (11) contiguous parcels located at 13333 Case Rd SW, Olympia, WA 98512. The parcels are located south of Maytown Road SW and west of Case Road SW. The Tacoma Railroad train tracks run through the property and Interstate 5 is to the east of the properties. The proposed land use & rezone amendment map is below.
