GMA Compliance Hearing Postponed

​OLYMPIA – Thurston County commissioners have postponed a public hearing regarding proposed changes to the county's Comprehensive Plan and development regulations. The cancelled hearing was originally intended to give the public an opportunity to comment on proposed Limited Areas of More Intensive Rural Development and revised agricultural lands designation criteria developed by the planning commission in response to a July 20, 2005 ruling by the Western Washington Growth Management Hearing Board.

"The board feels it is prudent to postpone the public hearing, previously set for October 30, until after a Washington State Court of Appeals hearing on the matter scheduled for Monday, November 27," says Chief Administrative Officer Don Krupp. The public and media outlets will be informed of the rescheduled hearing date as soon as it is determined.
