The Thurston County Board of Commissioners will hold a public hearing on at 3 p.m. on Tuesday, Jan. 7, to accept public testimony on proposed amendments to the county development code. 

The proposal would make non-phased subdivision projects eligible for a one-time, three-year extension. The current code limits those projects to a one-time, one-year extension. Phased subdivision projects would be eligible for a two-year extension for each phase of the project up to a maximum of 10 years total. 

If adopted, chapters 18.08 and 18.12 of the Thurston County Code would be amended to change the structure and length of preliminary plat extensions. The proposal does not include changes to the process for approving preliminary plat extensions. Detailed information about the proposal is available on the county website at:

Those unable to provide spoken testimony can submit written comments no later than 3 p.m. on Tuesday, Jan.7, to Associate Planner Ian Lefcourte at or hand deliver or mail them to Thurston County Community Planning and Economic Development, ATTN: Ian Lefcourte, associate planner, Thurston County Courthouse, Building 1, Second Floor, Building Development Center, 2000 Lakeridge Drive SW, Olympia.
