Background: Community Planning and Economic Development is asking community members to review projects under consideration for Community Planning’s 2024-2025 work plan and provide written comments about which proposals the county should address in 2024-2025.

After public review, the Thurston County Board of Commissioners will select and prioritize projects for each docket. The board will sort projects based on their priorities, staff capacity, and budgetary restraints.

Projects added to the work plan (official dockets) will then be forwarded to the Thurston County Planning Commission for review. The Planning Commission and the Board of County Commissioners will hold public hearings on the merits of the project approved for the official dockets prior to adoption of any final regulations.
