An update on the Economic Development Action Plan was presented to the Burien City Council on January 29, 2024. The presentation gave a broad overview of the process so far, key milestones completed, and a summary of what has been heard from the community throughout several engagement opportunities.
Key themes that have emerged throughout the process include challenges and opportunities for arts and tourism, our community workforce, and small businesses.
Staff will continue evaluating ideas collected through the recent community engagement process, as well as data from other recent, related planning efforts around a framework that considers community support, impact and equity, and City resources. The draft plan will prioritize and define actions and implementation considerations.
There are still opportunities to participate!
