words that say Thurston County

Welcome to the Permit Assistance Center (PAC)

Our regular Customer Service Hours are
Monday – Friday, 8 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.

(Closed all Federal Holidays)

If your gopher review is set to expire, you may eliminate the need for another review by submitting a complete application for a building permit, subdivision, or development agreement prior to the expiration date. It will vest your County permit application under your existing gopher review.  Contact the Permit Assistance Center to learn about building permit options.

Notes: This action does not extend the clearance recommendation provided by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. Take of a federally listed species is not permitted at any time regardless of the County permit application or approval.

Our helpful staff can guide you through the process of applying for a building permit. Stop by during office hours to pick up forms, ask questions or submit a residential application.

Commercial application submittals require an appointment. Contact us for more information or to schedule.

Septics and wells are managed by Environmental Health. They are in the PAC Monday through Friday, 8a.m. – 4:00p.m. to answer technical questions.
