City seeks input on cemetery plan

Tuesday, October 14, 2014 by Mark Richardson

The Parks and Recreation Department and the Cemetery Master Plan team want to hear from the community about burial options and other aspects of Austin’s municipal cemeteries. Citizens can link to the surveys through the city website. The Cemetery Master Plan process began in early 2014 and is the first planning effort for Austin’s historic municipal cemeteries. The plan will addresses issues related to historic preservation, tree care, management and policy as well as heritage tourism and educational programming. Austin’s historic municipal cemeteries include Austin Memorial Park Cemetery, Evergreen Cemetery, Oakwood Cemetery, Oakwood Cemetery Annex, and Plummers Cemetery. The Parks and Recreation Department has scheduled its fourth community meeting to discuss the plan on Nov. 3 from 6 to 8 p.m. at Zilker Botanical Gardens, 2220 Barton Springs Road.
