The Community Planning department updates building and land use regulations on behalf of Thurston's Board of County Commissioners. Updates are prompted by population growth or changing laws, and include meetings with citizens, and a citizen advisory group called the Planning Commission. Once adopted, updates may be implemented by the Permit Department and added to the County Code. Updates comply with Washington's Growth Management Act
