NE Redevelopment Area
Study Overview
The City of Burien, in partnership with the Port of Seattle, has completed its Redevelopment Plan and Implementation Strategy for the 135-acre Burien’s Northeast Redevelopment Area (NERA), located between 8th Avenue South, Des Moines Memorial Drive, and South 138th Street. The goal of the plan is to transform the NERA from a mixture of vacant, residential, public and small commercial land uses to uses compatible with Sea-Tac International Airport operations and existing and planned surrounding land uses.

The plan includes flexible and market-responsive redevelopment scenarios and newly adopted policies and development regulations to guide long-term development in the NERA. 

History

Work on the plan began in March 2008 and concluded in April 2010.  Over this two-year period, the City, Port and our consultants held various stakeholder and community meetings, published various studies and completed a final report.  These studies and reports are part of the appendix linked below.  The Burien City Council also adopted new Comprehensive Plan policies, land use designations, zoning standards and new zoning for the NERA.  All of these changes have been incorporated into our Comprehensive Plan text and map, and Zoning Code text and map. 


Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement
As part of this project, the City issued Draft and Final Supplemental Environmental Impact Statements (DSEIS and FSEIS) on the Comprehensive Plan and Zoning Changes, and the City Council adopted a “planned action” ordinance to streamline environmental review for projects in the NERA.

The DSEIS is available for free online. The FSEIS also is available for free online. Copies also can be viewed at the Burien Library and City Hall, 400 SW 152nd Street. If you would like to purchase your own copy either on paper or on a CD, please contact Roadrunner Print & Copy, 120 SW 153rd Street, (206) 242-4042. The cost of the DSEIS is $22 for the print copy or $9 for the CD; for the FSEIS, the cost is $15 for the print copy or $9 for the CD. Copies are not for sale at the Burien Library or City Hall.

Final Plan

The final plan report was completed in early 2010.  This report summarizes all study-related activities and lays out a rolling three-year strategy of both general and specific actions that the City and Port can take to transform the NERA.
