In our last issue, we focused on our community and how local organizations bring us together into shared gathering spaces. Now we ask you to look forward to the future of our city. How can government and community work together to shape a vision that works for all?
In this issue, you will read stories about a major planning effort to guide the future of land use, housing, parks and recreation, public art, and transportation for the next two decades as well as the new strategic plan, guiding the City’s focus for the next 3-5 years. You will also read the next installment of the “Your City at Work” series, featuring our new rental housing inspection coordinator, Manuela Ginnett.
You’ll be introduced to three new City-sponsored websites: one designed to help connect our community to government process, the second to offer an online marketplace for local businesses, and the third to attract future business investment to Burien.
Under our Arts, Culture, and Sustainability section, you’ll learn about a new and innovative program to get kids outside, find out how to sign up for the Adopt-A-Drain program, and read about StormFest, a stormwater science learning event for Highline Public Schools students.
