Thurston County, Washington

Community Planning and Economic Development

The Countywide Study of Industrial Lands (Industrial Lands Assessment) or Comprehensive Code Docket Item CPA-8 is a comprehensive review of all industrial lands within rural Thurston County and urban growth areas. The Industrial Lands Assessment was prioritized by the Board of County Commissioners as 3 out of 9 comprehensive plan amendment proposals. The purpose of the study is to determine whether an adequate supply of industrial lands exists to accommodate demand. The study will cover economic trends, review existing supply, and address three growth scenarios over the next 20-years. Each scenario will be accompanied by recommended changes to policies and regulatory requirements. Based on the assessment findings, the contractor will identify potential areas for rezoning and changes to the possible infrastructure investments and regulatory provisions.
