Planning Initiatives

The Community Development Department is responsible for working with the Planning Commission and City Council to plan for the future of Burien. Through collaboration with the community, staff works to envision what Burien should be like in the future and develops strategies to advance the community toward its vision.

The department is also responsible for creating plans, policies, and implementation programs that guide the growth and development of the city. Through the creation and implementation of the Comprehensive Plan and other elements, we shepherd the vision for the city’s future.

Community Development, in collaboration with residents and other stakeholders, is pursuing major planning initiatives to support the vision for the city and the City Council's near-term priorities. For more information, please visit the project-specific web pages.
