Burien 2044 Advisory Committee to Guide Comprehensive Plan Update

The City of Burien established a committee in early 2023 to help advise City staff on a major update to Burien’s Comprehensive Plan. The advisory committee is one of many groups of stakeholders advising the City on the Burien community’s needs and wishes for its future. The committee will provide recommendations to the Burien City Council.

The membership includes:

  • A representative from several City Council-appointed advisory boards (Arts Commission, Burien Airport Committee, Business and Economic Development Partnership, Human Services Commission, etc.)
  • Five Burien Community Connectors, representing Burien’s Amharic, Spanish, and Vietnamese-speaking communities.
  • Previously, the Burien Planning Commission was a member of the advisory committee.

The advisory committee will hold quarterly meetings via Zoom. Meetings will be recorded and available for members of the public to view after each meeting. Meetings are open to the public with a portion of the meeting reserved for public comments.

The following are anticipated topics the advisory committee would cover. Five to seven meetings are anticipated from January 2023 – March 2024. Prior to each meeting, agendas and background information will be posted below. After each meeting, video recordings will also be available below.
