The first phase is the largest of all the phases and it re-shaped the hill at the back of the cemetery.  Where failing wooden retaining walls were collapsing, a massive gravity wall of stone and cement was erected. Where there was no access, a beautiful curved staircase was built.  Three granite-faced columbaria were added with almost 300 niches.  A new concrete foundation was created for the Memorial Garden and the pavers were cleaned and placed on the new and solid base.  All this was done while creating a space for the new Reflection Scattering Garden on the hill.

Finishing this Phase

The final steps in Phase 1-1 are to encase the ends and back of the three new columbaria in rock matching the rock wall.  This will start on July 24, 2023.  On July 31st, the columbaria will be openened to Right of Interment [ROI] Licenses starting with those on our waiting list.  In early October, when the weather cools and the rains come, we will commence planting a dozen trees and 300 perennial plants of all species.
