Too Many LAMIRDS, Not Enough Farm Land in Thurston County?
While still appealing the decision, the county is proposing to down-zone about half of fifty current LAMIRDs to allow only one home per five acres. Quoting Ms. Brenner's article:
Under the first of the two county proposals, about 12,000 acres of high-density-pockets in the county would be “down-zoned” to 1 unit per 5 acres. The 12,000 acres represent about half of a total 21,000 acres now zoned at densities of 1 or 2 units per acre or 1 unit per 2 acres.
