Alki Brick & Plaque Project
ALKI STATUE OF LIBERTY PLAZA UPDATE
The Alki Community Council would like to thank all those who over the years have contributed through the purchase of engraved bricks and bronze plaques for the Alki Statue of Liberty Plaza.
The Alki Community Council brick and plaque sale continues to be a success. Total orders for engraved bricks and Tribute Plaques have raised $75,505.00. The ACC is allowed to retain a 7% fiscal sponsor fee. In addition, expenses incurred during the sale, office supplies, postage, engraving of the bricks, and casting of the plaques, are paid for by the Council from these funds. The remainder is turned over to Seattle Parks & Recreation where it is placed in a separate maintenance fund to be used for the upkeep of the statue and plaza.
The importance of having these funds available became apparent earlier this year. Problems developed with the patina on one of the pedestal plaques and on the statue. Parks was able to pay for a “conservation evaluation” and restoration work. This might not have been possible without a dedicated maintenance fund in these times of budgetary cutbacks.
As of June 2, there are no more bricks available and only 2 Tribute Plaques remaining. The sale will continue until the plaques have all been sold and the installations will take place in the fall of this year.
