The deadline for applying to be on one of the Advisory Boards for the City of Burien has been extended to Monday, Feb. 23rd.

If you’re wondering “why should I join one of these things?” here’s a testimonial from resident artist Maureen Hoffman, who served on the Arts Commission:

“Community is important to me.

Very important.

So that’s been the biggest aspect of being on the Arts Commission: giving to my community, nudging its direction, and building the community around me.

I have stepped into “circles” I likely may never have been a part of, and for that I have been immensely blessed. Art and Design are also key in my life, and to be on the Arts Commission at a time when Burien’s aesthetic expression is becoming so tangible and so visible has been exciting.

There is tremendous momentum in Burien, evident all around, and to have a hand in that, in even a small way, has been satisfying in ways I hadn’t envisioned.”

The four Advisory Boards are:

All appointments are made by the City Council and are for four-year terms (ad-hoc committee appointments are for the duration of the study or special purpose).
