Olympia Comprehensive Plan

Comprehensive Plan and Capital Facilities Plan (CFP)

Olympia first adopted a Comprehensive Plan over fifty years ago. This Plan describes the community's long-term vision and goals. In 2014, the City completed 'Imagine Olympia,' a process that resulted in a major update of the Plan. That current Comprehensive Plan, and the Capital Facilities Plan element which includes a 6-year financing plan, can be viewed on-line.

2016 Annual Comprehensive Plan Amendment Process

Proposals to amend the Comprehensive Plan can be submitted at any time. To assure consideration in 2016, proposals must be submitted to the Olympia Community Planning and Development Department by 5:00 p.m., Monday, November 2, 2015. 

  • Proposed amendments must be in writing with the "Preliminary Proposals" form. There is no charge to submit a preliminary proposal. 
  • All preliminary proposals will be reviewed by the Council. Those deemed 'worthy and appropriate' for further consideration will be referred to the Planning Commission for review during 2016. Any fees will be due prior to Commission review.
  • The Commission will host one or more public hearings and make a recommendation to the City Council regarding each proposal. Final review by the Council will conclude in the latter half of the calendar year.

If you have questions about either the Plan or the amendment process, please contact
Todd Stamm, Principal Planner, at 360.753.8597 or cpdinfo@ci.olympia.wa.us.
