Types of Review
Land Use Review
The Land Use Review is used by the City of Burien to determine if certain uses and projects comply with the Zoning Code and Comprehensive Plan and to provide an opportunity for public comment on the proposal and to inform citizens about projects.

Resources:
 
  • Land Use Review Application

  • Short Plat Review
    The Short Plat Review is used for review and approval of land division into four lots or less. This involves a decision by the Community Development Director following issuance of a public notice, consideration of written public comments and review of a written staff recommendation. The Director's decision can be appealed to the City's Hearing Examiner.

    Once a short plat receives preliminary approval, all conditions of approval must be met and any required public improvements installed. Then, the final short plat must be signed by the City and recorded with King County.

    Subdivision Review
    The Subdivision Review is used for review and approval of land division into five lots or more. This involves a decision by the City Council following issuance of a public notice, holding of a public hearing by the Hearing Examiner, consideration of public comments, and review of a written Hearing Examiner recommendation. The City Council's decision can be appealed to Superior Court.

    Lot Line Adjustment is used for moving existing lot lines between two or more lots. Review and approval is by City staff.

    Shoreline Exemption Review
    Shoreline Exemption Review is used for review and approval of projects located within 200 feet of Puget Sound or Lake Burien that are categorically exempt from the Shoreline Master Program.
