What kind of County does Thurston want to be?
That’s the million dollar question that the Planning Commission is asking Wednesday (17th) at 7:15pm when it holds a public hearing to review the sizing of its urban growth areas (UGA).
The hearing is on October 17 at 7:15 p.m. in the Board of County Commissioners Chambers, Room 280, located at the Thurston County Courthouse, 2000 Lakeridge Drive SW, Olympia Washington.
The public is invited to comment about the surge in traffic in these UGA’s, and in particular, how large Yelm’s is.
You are encouraged to speak on the matter
Your opinions WILL make a big difference, as we saw last week.
The proposed Comprehensive Plan amendments are textual amendments that revise the County’s Urban Growth
Area policy language, and update the County’s population forecast to bring it up to date with the most recent data available.
Please Note: The proposed amendments do not include changes to the County’s current UGA boundaries. The County’s UGA boundaries and any possible changes to them, will be discussed by the Thurston County Board of Commissioners at a briefing scheduled for October 23rd and are not the subject of this public hearing.
If you wish to comment on the proposed comprehensive plan amendments please come
and testify at the public hearing or submit written comments to
firstname.lastname@example.org by email,
mail, or in person at the permitting assistance center,
2nd floor of Bldg. 1, of the courthouse.
The deadline for providing written comments is the close of the public hearing on October 17, 2007.
