The Eastside Neighborhood was the the second area in Olympia to undertake sub-area planning. It completed it’s plan in 2020.

Mission and Vision

The mission of the Sub-area plan (plan) is to further the goals, policies, and values of Olympia’s Comprehensive Plan at the neighborhood level. The plan strives to include broad and diverse neighborhood participation in order to improve our neighborhood in the areas most important to our neighborhood, which may include, but aren’t limited to the topics addressed in the Comprehensive Plan:

  • Public participation
  • Natural environment
  • Land Use and Urban Design
  • Transportation
  • Utilities
  • Public Health, Parks, Arts and Recreation
  • Economy
  • Public Services (Police, Fire, Emergency Medical, etc.)

This plan lays the foundation for a neighborhood that is more inclusive, united, and cohesive, thus helping to achieve an improved quality of life for all people who are a part of our community.


A Charter was developed that formed the basis of this process with the city. It was approved by the City Council.


We reached out to the neighborhood using number of social media and traditional platforms to reach as many residents as possible.

To keep up with implementing the plan, you can help yourself by signing up for updates to this site (subscribe to our mailing list in the right column), Nextdoor, or our Facebook page.
