Development Code Changes Affect Ability to Develop Commercial Uses in Residential Zones

The Thurston County Board of Commissioners recently adopted an ordinance that amends Thurston County’s Development Code. This is Ordinance 14439, which pertains to changes required in the rules around the presubmission conferences that take place, when plans are being made to develop on private lands, and other details regarding developing in the County.

In a quick review of these changes, we found notable the list of non-conforming uses – particularly, how the County is limiting commercial uses on parcels adjoining residential parcels. It seems likely that some of these changes will impact those thinking of developing property for commercial uses in the Griffin area.
