Ocean View Cemetery Master Plan

Updated September 19, 2019

Staff is working closely with our consultant, E. Lees and Associates, to gather baseline historic data on grave sales, expenses, and revenue for the cemetery.  Tracking burial activity, labor costs, and forecasting trends will provide clear recommendations for decision making as the operational and financial future of the cemetery is planned.  To date, the consultants have visited and inventoried the site and conducted a kickoff meeting with City staff to gain their perspective on existing operational successes, challenges, and potential areas to improve.  In addition, an external stakeholders meeting with death-care industry members in the area, neighboring municipal and county government representatives, and other business-related entities that share an interest in the ongoing care of the cemetery was also held.

Master Planning Meeting Schedule:

  • Public Forum – November 13, 2019 at 6pm at City Hall – Consultants want to gather information from the public to possibly be applied to the Ocean View Cemetery Master Plan.
  • Park Board Meeting – November 14, 2019 at 6:45 am at City Hall – Consultants will gather information from Park Board Members to add to the Ocean View Cemetery Master Plan
  • City Council Workshop – November 14, 2019 at 1pm at City Hall - Consultants will gather information from City Council Members to add to the Ocean View Cemetery Master Plan
