Year-Round Permitting & Expert Conservation

The Habitat Conservation Plan (HCP) is the County’s response to the federal Endangered Species Act (ESA) listing of several animals in Thurston County. It was federally approved in July 2022, and will be implemented in 2023. It will save local building permit applicants the extra step of getting federal permits in addition to County permits if their project impacts listed species.
