My, how time flies. The Thurston Regional Planning Council approved Creating Places—Preserving Spaces in December 2013, and a lot has happened on the sustainability scene since then. You can read all about it in the first edition of The Main Street Journal — TRPC’s annual newsletter reporting Sustainable Thurston activities around the region. Pick up a print copy of the newsletter at TRPC or read it online.
Did you know that Olympia, Lacey and Tumwater are investing more than $20 million in urban corridor projects and personnel, and that South County businesses are learning new economic tools to boost their bottom line? The Main Street Journal gives you the inside scoop on these and other sustainability stories related to the plan’s six core chapters/themes: Leadership & Monitoring, Community, Economics, Opportunities & Choices, Environment, and Investment. The newsletter’s inaugural edition recaps what happened in 2014 and previews what’s slated for 2015. TRPC will publish a second print edition of the Journal in early 2016. If you know of something newsworthy in the meantime, TRPC will post a brief on this newsfeed. Contact Associate Planner Mike Burnham at firstname.lastname@example.org.
