Welcome to the New Website!

Welcome to the new City of Burien website! We are pleased to offer a new and improved online experience for residents, businesses, and visitors to our community. We will be continuing to enhance, add on, and roll out new features over the next year.

Let us highlight a few of the new features:

  • News & Events gets a new home
    We’re making it easier for you to find news from the City, as well as find information about City and community events.
  • Improved translate feature
    The entire site can be translated by clicking on the translate icon. We’ve also made it easier to request an interpreter for public meeting or city services.
  • Easier to use on a mobile device
    The entire website is now “responsive” to mobile devices like your smartphone or tablet.
  • Streamlined site navigation
    We tried to streamline and organize the website so that it made sense to you, the reader! No more trying to figure out which department you need to contact regarding an issue.
  • The new Report an Issue dashboard gives you a one-stop shop to report issues such as potholes and graffiti.
  • New ways to access information about your Council and citizen advisory boards
    We have a new way to access Council and Commission materials and new features on Council profiles, including voting records and attendance. 

While we believe these changes make for a more a better website, it may take time to get used to it. Pages have moved and you may not find them in the same location as before. We have deleted some pages and consolidated others. The first few times you use the new site may be frustrating. However, the more you use it the more it will make sense. If you use bookmarks for our old website, you will need to update them with their new location.

We want to hear what you think! We will use your feedback to make ongoing improvements to the website. Take the survey
