Goals & Actions




Welcome to Sustainable Thurston!

Sustainable Thurston is a community conversation that identifies a vision for a vibrant, healthy, and resilient future, as well as the actions and responsibilities to achieve it.

The Plan, Creating Places - Preserving Spaces: A Sustainable Development Plan for the Thurston Region, is the result of a two-and-a-half-year community conversation and analysis of quality-of-life issues. This Plan charts a more sustainable future for the Thurston Region.

Sustainable Thurston Vision 

"In one generation - through innovation and leadership - the Thurston Region will become a model for sustainability and livability.

We will consume less energy, water, and land, produce less waste, and achieve carbon neutrality.

We will lead in doing more while consuming less.

Through efficiency, coupled with strategic investments, we will support a robust economy.

Our actions will enhance an excellent education system, and foster a healthy, inclusive, and equitable social environment that remains affordable and livable.

We will view every decision at the local and regional level through the sustainability lens.

We will think in generations, not years.

The region will work together toward common goals, putting people in the center of our thinking, and inspire individual responsibility and leadership in our residents."
