Other Upcoming Events:

Saturday, Dec. 10.  Critical Areas Ordinance Hearing, Thurston County, Superior Court, Bldg. 2.  “The Growth Management Act requires local governments to protect five types of critical areas: important fish and wildlife habitat areas, wetlands, critical aquifer recharge areas, frequently flooded areas; and geologically hazardous areas, (such as bluffs). Thurston County’s critical areas regulations are a response to that law – they regulate how development and redevelopment can safely occur on lands that contain critical areas. The county’s Critical Areas Ordinance dates back to 1994, so many portions are out-of-date and have failed to keep pace with changes in state law. The county is now working to update the ordinance.”
