Residents preview plan for new cemetery

In a continued effort to engage McMurrayites on the proposed Real Martin Drive cemetery, the Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo held a public information session Thursday evening in the Casman Centre amphitheater.

“This is our third engagement for the Real Martin Drive cemetery,” said Lonnie Pilgrim, engineering capital technician with the municipality. “The first engagement discussed with the community the need for a cemetery, informing them of the need. The second engagement determined location with an ‘OK’ from the community, and now that we have the location determined we want to come back and give some visual, preliminary looks of how the cemetery could look, and give the exact location, and just keep gathering feedback from the community, as we did in the prior two when the project started in 2010.”
