Your county. Your vision.

Thurston County is beginning to work on the County’s Comprehensive Plan update.


The plan creates a vision for the next 20 years, with a framework to reach it. The plan guides:

  • Future land use.
  • Housing.
  • Economic development.
  • Population and employment growth.
  • Natural resource protection.
  • Capital facilities.


This is a larger update that builds off of existing work. Larger updates happen once every ten years, but smaller updates happen annually. With your input, we’ll update goals, policies, background information, and more to align the plan with changes in state law and the community’s key priorities.


Your participation is important! Your feedback in this survey will be used to help update the visions in the current Comprehensive Plan during the Thurston 2045 update. It includes 6 short answer questions and should take about 10 minutes to complete.
