REMINDER: The ‘Dreaming of a Better Burien’ protest dance is set to happen tonight – Monday, Oct. 15 – at the Burien City Council meeting, starting at 7 p.m.

This choreographed dance is intended for “anyone who supports the idea that Burien cannot settle for apartments-only development in the remaining Town Square parcels,” as well as to get attention of city councilmembers.

“It would be unconscionable to waste precious downtown core real estate on housing only,” reads an announcement from the group. “Burien must bring in a mix of retail and restaurants, maybe a boutique hotel, maybe a larger art-house movie theatre, or other regional large-draw attractions, including other arts and cultural amenities. And definitely more green space!! Burien must have a strong, unique marketing vision for solid, long-term economic success.”

“If you believe that Burien needs a better plan for the remaining Town Square Parcels, please join Dreaming of a Better Burien as we make our presence known!”

The group appears to be comprised of numerous artists and activists, and their protest has been going on a while – read our previous coverage here.

You can see the dance in person at City Hall, 400 SW 152nd Street, on TV channel 21 in Burien, or via online streaming here.

The B-Town Blog will be there to videotape the event, and we’ll post footage as soon as we can.

    Don’t let Mike Martin ruin our city!

    Downtown Buriens Town square should NOT BE APARTMENTS!

    Ok, you have several quotes in the piece, but who are they referencing, this group or someone?

    And…I can’t believe I’m saying this–but I agree with Mr. Poitras. Do not allow apartments in the town square.
