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.

District Use Standards for Places of Worship Code Amendment

The Places of Worship development code amendment is a citizen-initiated amendment to current special use code regulations for Places of Worship within residential districts in the Olympia Urban Growth Area (Title 23). The applicant (Thomas Architecture Studio on behalf of Peace Lutheran Church) requests an amendment to the Thurston County Code, Section 23.04.060(21), to revise language so that dwelling units be reviewed as an associated use, and so that associated uses be reviewed and permitted as determined by the jurisdiction, rather than as permitted by the underlying zoning district.

This item was first officially docketed by the Board of County Commissioners in 2020. It is titled "CR-5, Peace Lutheran - Amend District Use Standards for Places of Worship".
