Open House Invited Community to Help Shape Burien’s Future

Thank you to everyone who attended the Shape Your City Open House on December 6. We know it was hard to find time during busy holiday schedules, but we appreciate everyone who shared their voice for the future of our city!

If you couldn’t make it, or have more to share, we have launched an online engagement activity where you can learn more about the different plans, take surveys, and provide feedback to the city. This activity will close on January 5, 2024. We encourage you to participate and share with your networks!

We also want to extend a special thank you to our Community Connectors, who helped bring new voices into the conversation and provided essential interpretation services for people who speak Spanish, Vietnamese, Amharic, Oromo, and Tigrinya. You can meet our Connectors and learn more about the program at

Burien Community Connectors and the City of Burien Communications Division supported outreach for the event.

We also want to give a shoutout to all the volunteer advisory board and commission members who brought themselves (and their families!) to the event. We appreciate your service to the city.

What’s next?

Each project planning team, made up of City staff and consultants, will be evaluating the feedback gathered through the open house and the online engagement activity (see above) to create the final drafts of each plan. The plans will be presented during public meetings and the public is invited to provide public comment. Read next steps on each plan’s project page:
