The City of Burien is continuing its “Vision for Burien” project with three upcoming Community Visioning Forums, which are open to residents, councilmembers as well as members of the Planning Commission, Arts Commission, Parks & Recreation Board, and the Business & Economic Development Partnership.

Your participation is essential!

You can check out the schedule page for upcoming community forum information.

We also invite you to fill out our online survey.

The three upcoming forums are:

  • Saturday, April 16, 2011, 10:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at Seahurst Elementary, 14603 14th Ave. S.W.
  • Tuesday, April 26, 2011, 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at Hazel Valley Elementary, 402 SW 132nd St.

These meetings are open to all residents, and the city’s website adds:

Our community enjoys a rich and unique history that continues to define who we are today. We’re asking all our residents to help create a common, unifying vision for our city. The goal of the visioning effort is to provide the Burien community with a sense of direction and a framework for evaluating future policy decisions. The vision that emerges will provide a critical foundation for upcoming City planning efforts:

  • Comprehensive Plan Update
  • Transportation Master Plan
  • Parks and Recreation Open Space Plan
  • Drainage Master Plan

The City of Burien strives to provide alternate communication opportunities. Please contact the City Clerk’s office, 206/248-5517, twenty-four hours prior to the meeting, for assistance.

    Does the city council see anything beyond 152nd street? Burien collects taxes from all of Buriens resdents and businsess’ (well most)…but it seems like 152nd street is the only area that really matters, or benefits. Why do the sidewalks on 152nd look nicer? Why don’t we have garbage cans on any other sidewalks in any other part of Burien? Why did they pour all that money in to a 100+ unit eyesore that sits empty? It looks more like a glorified housing project than upscale living!!! The money that SITS there could have done some seriously needed improvements for ALL the people of Burien….like asome of the items listed above in the Cities list of “planning efforts”. Burien is starting to look like a microcosm of america, in that the only areas that matter, are where the “rich” play or where they think money should be spent. Ohhh….I got it….its about the image!! I envision a better council with a broader vision!
