Comprehensive Plan Public Hearing

​Welcome to the Self-Guided Open House for the Comprehensive Plan

How the Open House Works

What the Open House is About: Four parts of the plan not finished when the rest of the plan was updated in 2019 

  1. Mineral lands (How & why to keep land with sand, gravel and bedrock available for continued mining).
  2. Forestry (How & why to keep forest lands forested).
  3. Parks (How much land to set aside).
  4. Health (Update with current community health info).  
A very brief explanation of the Comprehensive Plan
The plan guides Commissioner decisions about County government work priorities and spending in unincorporated Thurston County. Unincorporated areas are outside of Lacey, Olympia and Tumwater, including Grand Mound, Rochester, Nisqually, and parts of Lacey, Olympia, Rainier, Tenino, Tumwater, and Yelm in County-regulated zones called urban growth areas.
