Thurston County, Washington

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.

Recent adoption of amendments
On December 12, 2023 the Board of County Commissioners took an action to adopt the grand mound subarea plan, code changes to lot widths and design guidelines for the grand mound UGA, and 4 site-specific land use and zoning amendments (Steelhammer, Fire District, Morgan Dental, and Tribal Trust Lands). 

View the adopted changes: resolution 16331 (subarea plan, land use changes); ordinance 16332 (code changes).

The Grand Mound Subarea Plan guides growth and development for the Grand Mound Urban Growth Area over the next twenty years. An update is currently in progress to consider 5 citizen land use and rezoning applications - 3 of which request an expansion to the Grand Mound Urban Growth Area.
