Zoning Code
Burien's Zoning Code (Title 19 of the Municipal Code) is organized using charts for each zone in the city. Using the Zoning Map, find the property you are interested in, and the corresponding zone. Then, find the set of use zone charts in Zoning Code Chapter 19.15 that correspond with the zone in which you're interested.

The first page of each set of charts provides any special regulations that apply to all properties in that zone, along with a brief description of the purpose and intent of the zone. On each following chart, along the left side are the uses that may be allowed in that zone. Along the top are the different types of regulations that apply (such as height limit and parking requirements).

Each row contains all of the basic regulations needed for each use. More details for each type of regulation can be found in the chapter referenced in the chart. Also, the far right column in each chart includes special regulations that apply to each use.

Finally, words in italics are defined in Zoning Code Chapter 19.10.

Periodically, the Zoning Code is updated or new sections are added. The following is a list of recent updates:
