City looking for feedback on new cemetery in southeast Calgary

The City of Calgary is planning for a new cemetery and looking for your input at an open house on Thursday, May 1, 2014.

There are three design concepts for the new cemetery and The City wants your feedback and answers to these questions (and a few more):

  • What does a cemetery mean to you?
  • What are your needs and wants are with respect to the new cemetery?
  • What types of services, features, amenities, and other things should be offered at the new cemetery?
  • How should social, cultural or religious activities be accommodated at the new cemetery?
  • What other activities besides interment and memorialization might you support at this site?

The open house will be held from 5 – 8 p.m. in the Blue Heron Room at Ralph Klein Park, 12350 84th Street S.E. A brief presentation and short question and answer period is scheduled on the hour at 5 p.m., 6 p.m. and 7 p.m.

The new cemetery will be situated to the east of Ralph Klein Park in the southeast quadrant of Calgary. For more information about the new City cemetery, please visit http://calgary.ca/secemetery.

For those not able to attend the open house, an online survey will be available at http://calgary.ca/secemetery for people to provide their input and feedback on the design of the new cemetery. The survey will be open May 1 to June 1, 2014.

  1. Why do we need cementarys? Its a waste of land. Cant bury everyone that dies. Everyone should be cremated and planted with seeds for more trees
