Freeway Park Needs Your Input!

Seattle Parks and Recreation (SPR) and Freeway Park Association invite the community to participate in the Freeway Park Improvement project. Please visit the website: www.seattle.gov/parks/restorefreewaypark to review project information and take a short survey. Your feedback is important and will be incorporated into the design for the future repairing, restoring and enhancing of Freeway Park. The survey closes November 27 at 5 p.m.  This is your chance to provide input that can help direct the future of our neighbor, Freeway Park!

SPR has $10 million in funding from the Washington State Convention Center Expansion Project as part of the public benefit package associated with the Convention Center expansion. The funding will repair, restore and enhance Freeway Park. Of the $10 million, $750,000 is for activation within the park and $9,250,000 is dedicated to capital improvements which includes actual construction (approximately $6 million), as well as design and project management, permitting, sales tax and contingencies. The initial scope of the capital improvements is based on the Finding Freeway Park concept plan, produced by the Freeway Park Association, and identifies infrastructure upgrades, lighting, wayfinding and possibly a new restroom. The design phase is expected to be complete with all necessary permits/approvals and construction bid documents by June 2021.

Flu Shot Clinic

Union Square is pleased to announce that the Seattle Visiting Nurse Association (SVNA) will be providing a Flu Immunization Clinic at Union Square.  The SVNA is a community based, not for profit, Washington State Corporation.

The clinic is open to all occupants of Union Square.  Participants will need to complete the waiver of liability and notice of privacy practices, which are attached. The flu shots are administered by registered nurses. SVNA is able to bill most primary health plans – Regence, Group Health, Premera, United HealthCare, First Choice and Aetna. They do not accept Cigna or straight Provider One unless the plan is tied to an Apple Health Plan.  You may also pay by cash or check; payment is $40.00 for standard Quadrivalent, due at the time the shot is given.  The nurses also carry a small amount of Thimerosal-Free vaccine for pregnant women as required by Washington State regulations.

For those employers who wish to pay for their employees’ flu shots, SVNA can invoice upon completion of the clinic. Please provide SVNA with billing information (to include the contact name at your company and a list of employees receiving the shot) on your company letterhead on the attached roster billing sheet. They will bill at the completion of the clinic, but the billing information and a list of employees must be provided prior to the clinics.
