Thank you for your interest in the Thurston Climate Mitigation Plan and for signing up for climate mitigation plan updates. We are excited to inform you about progress on Thurston County, Lacey, Olympia, and Tumwater’s strategy to reduce local contributions to climate change.

On Monday, June 27, 2022, from 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm Thurston Regional Planning Council will host a Climate Action Steering Committee meeting. Click here to access the meeting webinar registration link, agenda, and materials. 

The committee will consider membership to the Climate Advisory Workgroup, and will discuss sending a letter to the Department of Natural Resources as a follow-up to last month’s presentation on Washington State’s legacy forests from the Center for Responsible Forestry.

There will be an opportunity for public comment at the start of the meeting – if you wish to provide oral comment during the meeting, please check the box to indicate this when registering. Written comments may be emailed to, and must be received by noon on June 24, 2022, to be provided to the Committee prior to the meeting.
