Earlier this year, Cascade Township held a public meeting to introduce a potential project to expand the 30th Street Cemetery. In case you are unaware, the Township owns approximately 6.5 acres of undeveloped land as part of the 30th Street Cemetery. With the stock of available sites at the cemetery limited, the Cascade Township Board is considering a potential project to expand the cemetery to allow for more burial spaces.
After listening to resident feedback, the Township has redeveloped the 30th Street Cemetery expansion project concept. Among other changes, the access drive from Leyton to the cemetery expansion area has been removed, slopes near the west property line have been reduced, and the “buffer” area around the new cemetery area has been increased to 50 feet with evergreen tree infill. This project is now being presented to the Township Board for consideration. Should the Township Board decide to move forward with the project, it is anticipated construction would begin in 2019.
Below are the details of the upcoming meetings:
- 30th Street Cemetery Expansion – Township Board Introduction Meeting
- Wed, January 9th at 7:00 pm (Regular Township Board Meeting)
- Wisner Center - 2870 Jacksmith Avenue SE Grand Rapids, MI 49546
