APPROVAL OF MINUTES – from meeting on Jan 5, 2023



Decide how to lay out the newly surveyed parts of Niles and West Halifax

  • Will there be new “roads” or paths through the section
  • Is the designation “Section B” acceptable for the new areas?
  • How will the sections be oriented (will they be similar to the existing section or something different)
  • How far off the property lines and/or edge of woods would we like to be with the new plots
  • Number of gravesites and their sizes (typically 4 gravesites within each “plot” marked with a pin & cap marker in the ground)
  • Location and dimensions of proposed “Main Road” and turn-a-round on the West Halifax Plot
  • Should the West Halifax Cemetery swale be moved? Drawn where currently lies.
