Parks department hosts Oakwood Cemetery Chapel update
Monday, April 10, 2017 by Nina Hernandez
At a community meeting in March, the Parks and Recreation Department took suggestions for how to commemorate the unmarked graves found underneath Oakwood Cemetery Chapel. Since then, staff has worked to gather the feedback into a draft report that will be released at a meeting tomorrow, April 11, in the Chestnut Community Center, 1183 Chestnut Ave., beginning at 6:30 p.m. According to a Friday press release, the department will start a public commemoration process including those with ties to the site “along with artists, archaeologists, historians, design professionals, cemetery advocates and the historic preservation community.” Anyone interested in participating in that process can sign up here.
