Thurston County Asking for Public Input on Proposed Building Regulations in Gopher Habitat

From The Chronicle:

Thurston County officials are asking the public to provide input on proposed building regulation and permitting changes revolving around construction in unincorporated areas that overlap with Mazama pocket gopher habitat.

The comment period is open through Oct. 4, when Thurston County commissioners will host a public hearing on the draft ordinance starting at 3:30 p.m. at the Thurston County Courthouse.

Should it pass, the ordinance will amend the Habitat Conservation Plan (HPC) regulations that were approved back in July by federal regulators and the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service.

The draft HPC ordinance can be reviewed online at https://bit.ly/3qoL1Cv.

Those interested in commenting can do so at https://bit.ly/3RvGpXd.

Email comments can also be submitted by sending them to hpcinfo@co.thurston.wa.us. Residents can also mail their comments to Thurston County Senior Planner Christina Chaput at Thurston County Courthouse, Building 1, second floor, 2000 Lakeridge Dr. SW, Olympia, WA 98502.
