Zoning Conversion for North Highline “South Annexation Area”

The City of Burien continues it preparations to annex the North Highline “South Annexation Area” as approved by voters in August 2009. A required step is adoption of zoning for the area. The City of Burien Planning Commission is reviewing a proposal from the City’s Department of Community Development to convert the existing King County zoning designations to City of Burien designations. A more formal review of these designations would occur as part of the City’s scheduled planning process in 2010 and 2011.

The Burien Planning Commission will be taking its first look at the proposed conversion on Tuesday, Nov. 10th, at 7 p.m. at Burien City Hall, 400 SW 152nd Street (Suite 300). The Commission will conduct a public hearing on the proposed conversion on Tuesday, November 24th, at 7 p.m., also at Burien City Hall. The public is welcome and encouraged to attend and/or submit written comments. The Planning Commission then will make a recommendation to the Burien City Council, which must adopt zoning for the annexation area prior to annexation in 2010.
