Share Your Stories and Ideas to Help Shape Your City

The City of Burien is re-imagining the long-term future of our city through a coordinated planning effort called “Shape Your City”.  In the community visioning phase of Shape Your City, you shared your priorities and helped us develop a clear vision for this work. Now, we’re coming back to you with questions that will help us take those priorities and build strategies and solutions for you to evaluate.

Results of this planning effort will guide policymaking, operational plans, and budgets for the next twenty years. It’s vital that community voice guides these important planning processes and understanding where people can live, work, play, and move around Burien is essential.

If you have any questions or general comments, please email us at
