2013-2014 Proposed Comp Plan Amendments (Official Docket)
Thurston County provides early and continuous public participation when making changes to the Comprehensive Plan and the development regulations that implement it. Annually, the public is invited to participate in the county’s “docketing” process, where proposed amendments to the plan or regulations are listed and prioritized for the following year’s work.
The public is often a source of suggested changes to the plan or regulations. In addition, county staff regularly organize public forums, committees, task forces, and meetings with community organizations to discuss amendments. Finally, every proposed amendment to the Comprehensive Plan or development regulations has at least one formal public hearing to gather public comment. For more information about how you can participate, view the Comprehensive Plan Amendment Fact Sheet.
Thurston County also has a separate docket for changes to its development regulations.
2013-2014 Comprehensive Plan Docket
