For A Fee, You Can Have People Sit On Your Company Name
Have you ever fantasized about having strangers sit on your company name or logo?
Well, here’s your chance to make your wish come true right here in the heart of Burien â€“ at the new Town Square Park.
Take it away, Captain Press Release:
With all the hustle and bustle construction, a crane you canâ€™t miss, beams going up around the new library/city hall and the rest of the activity at Burienâ€™s Town Square, itâ€™s easy to forget that a new one-acre park is soon to emerge from all the work.
The City of Burien has awarded a contract to L. W. Sundstrom, Inc. for the parkâ€™s construction, and Burienâ€™s first downtown park should be completed in time for the opening of the new library/city hall in the spring of 2009.
The park will be the focus of community activity for generations to come (perhaps even another B-Town BlogstockAPalooza?), including concerts, events, festivals and other gatherings. It will offer a plaza, fountains, public art, and a low-maintenance â€œgreenâ€ landscaping plan.
Citizens are invited to be a part of this historic change in Burienâ€™s downtown by making a contribution to the new park. The park will have several benches and other amenities that citizens sponsor by making a donation toward the cost of installation. Donorsâ€™ names will be placed on permanent plaques on these park furnishings.
The City is also looking for a major donor to contribute to the parkâ€™s major sculpture piece, known as the â€œSunset Pavilionâ€ by artist James Harrison.
The Town Square Park donation program is as follows:
Town Square Park Project:
- 10 benches: $1,500 each
- 5 trash receptacles: $1,000 each
- James Harrison art piece: $20,000
Town Square and 4th SW Ave:
- 7 benches: $1,500 each
- 9 trash receptacles: $1,000 each
- 1 landscape planting box feature: $1,000
If you would like more information about the donation program or are interested in donating toward the costs of have these park and street furnishings, contact the Cityâ€™s Parks Department at (206) 988-3700.
