Friday is deadline for Cemetery Master Plan

Tuesday, March 3, 2015 by Mark Richardson

The Cemetery Master Plan Draft is available for community review. The Austin Parks and Recreation Department is seeking the community’s feedback about the draft plan, which 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. In order for comments and suggestions to be incorporated into the final draft, community feedback is requested by Friday. The full Cemetery Master Plan Draft can be viewed here. Once comments are received, the draft plan will be finalized and brought forward to several city boards and commissions before a final presentation to City Council in early summer.
