Senoia to expand city cemetery

The limited number of grave sites available at the Senoia Cemetery on Stallings Road will soon be a thing of the past.

The Senoia City Council at the Jan. 23 meeting unanimously approved the development of an additional 2.5 acres to provide more than 1,000 new grave sites. The cost of development will be recouped through the sale of the grave sites.

City Administrator Richard Ferry in making the request said the cemetery currently has about 20 grave site left. Developing an additional 2.5 acres would add another 1,020 sites to the Stallings Road cemetery, Ferry said.

The total amount to be spent on the project is $152,688. Ferry noted that, to date, approximately $92,000 had already been spent and that the remainder of the sum will come from city reserves.

Ferry said the money spent on the project will be recouped from the sales of cemetery lots. The price of those lots has yet to be determined, Ferry added.

Ferry said the cemetery’s expansion would also required the addition of a retention pond, adding that it would be outfitted in a decorative fashion.
