Burien wants community engagement strategist
information from the City of Burien
The City of Burien is seeking qualifications from individuals or organizations to provide a comprehensive and equitable strategy for engaging Burien residents in city planning projects over the next two years. The City values community participation in the civic process and wants to ensure that future decisions are representative of our residents’ values and needs. The first project the consultant will work on is the revision of the Parks, Recreation, and Open Space Plan. However, there are options to expand the scope of work to include outreach for upcoming updates to the Comprehensive Plan and Transportation Master Plan as well.
“The City of Burien acknowledges that many of our residents have barriers to participating in public processes and we want to ensure voices from all of our residents are heard, including those of historically underrepresented populations,” said Carolyn Hope, Parks, Recreation and Cultural Services Director.
