This week, the City of Austin’s Parks and Recreation Department announced that its Cemetery Master Plan Draft is available for community review. Until March 6, the department will be accepting feedback about the plan as it addresses “historic preservation, tree care, management and policy as well as heritage tourism and educational programming.” The plan covers Austin’s five historic municipal cemeteries, which are: Austin Memorial Park Cemetery, Evergreen Cemetery, Oakwood Cemetery, Oakwood Cemetery Annex and Plummers Cemetery. The full draft plan, along with information about the plan, can be found on the city’s website.
