Sustainable Thurston - Moving Toward Implementation
11/27/13: The December Draft Creating Places - Preserving Spaces is now available. Download it here [PDF 13 MB].
10/22/2013: After 38 meetings over two and a half years, The Sustainable Thurston Task Force has completed their work. They are forwarding the draft Plan to The Thurston Regional Planning Council for review at the November 1st meeting and action at the December 6th meeting. Local jurisdictions will consider a joint resolution to accept the Plan after its adoption. Then the hard work starts - putting the Plan to action.
To stay involved in the Process, please sign up for email updates. We’ll continue to send out regular reminders of community meetings and other activities, as the Sustainable Thurston Plan moves into implementation.
9/19/13 UPDATE: Analysis of Basic Needs Survey! The following report analyzes more than 1,000 survey responses from residents of Thurston County who do not traditionally participate in planning projects. This survey will help inform action in both the Creating Places - Preserving Spaces plan, and a more detailed Urban Corridor strategy.
