Nisqually Subarea Plan

2018/2019 Official Comprehensive Plan Docket Item #6

Nisqually is a 9,000 acre, rural subarea in northeast Thurston County.  In 1992, a separate development and zoning plan was adopted to address the unique needs of the Nisqually community.  That plan is now being updated as part of the Comprehensive Plan Update.
