Economic Development Action Plan

The City of Burien is developing an economic development action plan. City staff and advisory board members will work together to build consensus on priority actions that will help improve the economic vitality of our community.

The action plan will contain specific economic development goals, strategies, and implementation measures and an implementation plan, outlining the timing, anticipated cost, and funding source of each implementation action.

The preliminary overview and update of the plan was presented at the January 29, 2024 City Council Meeting.
