Comprehensive Plan – Subarea Plans

​A subarea plan is a long-range plan that guides future growth and development in the rural communities of Thurston County.  Thurston County government develops subarea plans in cooperation with each community, and they align with the Thurston County Comprehensive Plan. Plans typically include detailed goals and policies tailored to address the unique characteristics of each community.
