Olympia Comprehensive Plan – Amendment Opportunity

Olympia Welcomes Plan Ideas.  In December the City of Olympia completed a five-year effort by adopting a major update of the community’s Comprehensive Plan. This new Plan is to guide the city for at least the next 20 years. Although fresh off the presses, the City of Olympia is now welcoming proposals to refine that new Plan. Any such proposals must be submitted to the City by 5:00 p.m., Monday, March 2. This will be the only opportunity for the public to propose Plan amendments this year. For more information, see the City of Olympia website, olympiawa.gov, or contact Todd Stamm of the Community Planning Department at 753-8597.
