In july last year, the city council held a general debate on how to proceed with the city’s old cemetery. The results of the debate should make the office arc.Grun in a future planning and present again. This happened in the meeting on monday evening.
A paved median, more burials in the eastern part, the creation of a central square in front of the blessing hall and various solutions for urn burials, tree plantings and the creation of resting benches were found in the elaboration.
The estimated total cost of the remodeling is around 260,000 euros. However, in order to obtain the space for the area in front of the blessing hall, some grave rights were not allowed to be extended. Five graves had to be relocated. The council must decide on this individually.
Whether the square in front of the hall can be at least partially roofed over, according to a suggestion by ernst plannasch, will be examined. In the next step, the council will receive the documents for inspection before a further discussion in the council takes place.
