Upcoming Webinar on Cemeteries – Preservation and Zoning issues

APA Planning and Law Division

WEBINAR Preservation and Zoning for Cemeteries: What Lies Ahead
Monday, March 21, 2022 
1:30 p.m. ET

1.50 CM (1.00 CM Law)
1.50 CLE through Illinois State Bar
 There is controversy about how to best use cemeteries. On one hand, cemeteries are seen as a place of rest for the deceased. In recent history, cemeteries can be parks, often with low traffic and low activity. On the other hand, cemeteries are opportunities to explore oral histories and celebrate the immediate community. Some cemeteries have recently explored alternative burial practices, commercial activity and historical education. Still more circumstances call for removal of burial sites, sometimes for development needs, and at other times for protection of managed cemeteries. This webinar will explore these often-overlooked residential areas by focusing on the preservation, zoning and future uses of burial sites. The speakers will discuss the economic burden of death and possible environmental regulations that can facilitate traditional, green and innovative burials. The webinar will cover recent case law regarding burial site removal for commercial development in Atlanta, as well as the new Atlanta Cemetery Network, and will discuss state regulations and zoning for pet cemeteries, which are increasingly in demand as pets are increasingly considering to be core family members.RegistrationJoin PLD before registering for updates on future webinars!
