In order to change County plans and regulations, the County's Comprehensive Plan must be amended. Each year, Thurston's Board of County Commissioners review a preliminary list of incoming change requests to decide which will go on the Official Docket for deeper analysis and public review.  Items not completed by the end of the year may be included on next year's preliminary docket.
