What would you like to see in a new Thurston County Courthouse and Civic Center?
Do you have an idea of what you would like to see in a new Courthouse and Civic Center? Your input on this 3-5 minute survey will help the County prioritize what is important in choosing design options for three potential sites. To learn more about the project, visit the Courthouse and Civic Center Project webpage.
Over the past year, leadership from Thurston County and the City of Olympia have been working collaboratively on a project to either reconstruct the existing Courthouse Complex or build a new Courthouse and Civic Center facility.
The Courthouse Complex buildings in their current state are at the end of their useful life, costing significant taxpayer dollars to maintain and operate. The current layout and design also makes it difficult for citizens to locate important County resources and services in a timely manner. The success of this project will improve and consolidate services, as well as promote long-term cost savings, improved access, and increased consistencies across County offices and departments.
