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.

Thurston County to Launch New Website

Meghan Porter, Public Information Supervisor, Board of County Commissioners. 360.490.0562 or

Thurston County will launch a new, redesigned website on March 1, 2023. This is the county’s first major website redesign in more than a decade. The county worked with a consulting company and used customer feedback collected in the first half of 2022 to complete the redesign.

As the result of the redesign, Thurston County’s updated website will:

  • Improve access to all county services.
  • Establish a consistent look across all county office and department pages.
  • Increase the county’s brand recognition.
  • Raise community engagement.

“Upgrading to a new web content management system gives Thurston County access to a diverse set of analytic and content management tools to streamline the process of keeping the site up to date and allow the county to shape our content and navigation to fit the needs of our diverse community.” said Meghan Porter, Public Information Supervisor.

Please note, there will be a content freeze across the website February 21 through February 28 to finalize the transition. This means there will be no content updates to the website during that time unless statutorily required.
