The City of Burien is re-imagining the long-term future of our city through a coordinated planning effort called "Shape Your City". Over the last two years, the Burien community has shared their priorities and helped develop a shared vision and high-level priorities. Earlier this year, the Shape Your City initiative team worked with members of the community to expand this vision to build more specific strategies and solutions for the community to evaluate.

The community is invited to attend the Shape Your City Open House to provide feedback on the concepts and drafts for the following planning efforts:

The open house event is on December 6, 2023, 6-7:30 p.m. in the Community Room at the Burien Library. Join us for food and collaborative activities for both youth and adults. Interpretation will be available in Spanish, Vietnamese, Oromo, and Amharic.

“We appreciate the feedback our community and advisory boards have already given,” said Adolfo Bailon, Burien City Manager. “We are listening to that feedback and incorporating it into the plans that will be presented this fall.”

Read more about what we have heard so far and keep an eye out for City staff at upcoming community events. There are several ways to stay involved with this initiative:

Understanding where people live, work, play, and move around Burien is essential to the planning process. Results of this planning effort will guide policymaking, operational plans, and budgets for the next twenty years.
