In January 2013, Green Hills submitted plans reflecting an overall building height of 22.5’, with a datum point of 322.5’ to the top of the parapet. A silhouette was installed depicting the proposed building envelope, including its height. A silhouette certification was submitted ensuring that the silhouette reflected the submitted plans (see attachment below).
In April 2013, the Planning Division approved the plans and subsequently another set of plans with revisions to the grading and no changes to the building height in November 2013. Green Hills were granted a Building Permit and construction began. In August and September 2015, building height certifications prepared by a licensed surveyor were submitted by Green Hills certifying the parapet wall at a height of 322.5’ (see attachment below).

Areas 5 and 6 are approved to be used for stockpiling of soil while other parts of the cemetery are developed/improved over time. As earth is placed and removed from the area, it is inevitable that the grades will continuously change.
It should be noted that the Master Plan shows future mausoleum buildings in the west half of this area. For future development applications for these mausoleum buildings, the baseline grades will be based on the 2011 topographic survey filed with the City. Any improvements in this area will be subject to review with opportunities for public input.
As the most recent Annual Review was conducted on January 31, 2017, the next Annual Review is anticipated to be conducted by the City Council in January 2018.
