The Pleasanton Parks and Recreation Commission will consider approving a new master plan for the city-owned Pioneer Cemetery at its meeting tonight.
Kathleen Yurchak, assistant director of Operations Services, said the plan, developed by a "Master Plan Oversight Committee," has been available for public review since Sept. 2 on the city's website at www.cityofpleasantonca.gov/ Feedback was to be sent to her at firstname.lastname@example.org/ or by mail to: City of Pleasanton, Attention: Kathleen Yurchak, PO BOX 520, Pleasanton, CA 94566.
The Oversight Committee was appointed by the City Council to help determine the future of the cemetery. Yurchak said the process began last January and that over the past eight months, an outside consultant, PGA design Inc., has worked with city staff to develop a comprehensive Master Plan.
Since then, Yurchak said, residents and "interested stakeholders" have had an opportunity to review and comment on the draft plan that includes a summary of the cemetery's existing conditions, a design concept plan including landscape improvements, expanded burial options and improved access.
In addition, Yurchak said the plan includes a business plan framework, estimated construction costs, and operating rules and regulations.
The Parks and Recreation Commission meeting will start at 7 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 9, in the City Council chamber at the Pleasanton Civic Center, 200 Old Bernal Ave.
