Sustainable Thurston Plan

The Sustainable Thurston project began in early 2011 with a simple question for the Thurston Region's quarter-million residents: How do you want your community to look, function, and feel in 2035?

Online and in person, thousand of engaged residents helped the Sustainable Thurston Task Force craft a regional vision of sustainable development that encompasses land use, housing, energy, transportation, food, health, and other interconnected issues.

Creating Places — Preserving Spaces: A Sustainable Development Plan for the Thurston Region, aims to integrate sustainability into all regional decision-making to achieve a healthy economy, society, and environment.
