Port Commissioners’s (sic) agree to propose new district boundaries that are the same as those to be proposed by the Board of County Commissioners

Expansion of both commissions will be up to voters next month

From The JOLT News:

The Port of Olympia’s commissioners agreed to set its districts’ boundaries to match those of the County Commissioners during a work session held yesterday, October 3.

Thurston County’s Board of County Commissioners had agreed to accept the same map on September 28 as part of their own redistricting efforts. Both entities are both working to add two more districts from just three due to the population of the county exceeding 300,000 earlier this year.

Before redistricting could proceed, voters will have to first agree on the addition of two new districts. They are set to vote on the matter as part of a ballot proposition in the general elections on November 8.

The Port will then hold public hearings on the boundaries of the five districts on November 29 and consider public comment on December 2, before finalizing the redistricting plan on December 12.


District 2 would cover the rest of Lacey and Yelm down to Lawrence Lake and areas south of Nisqually River.
