Cemetery Master Plan

The Town of The Blue Mountains has commissioned LEES+Associates to develop a Cemetery Master Plan to guide the future operations, care, and development of the Thornbury Clarksburg Union Cemetery site. 

This report will enable the Town to better understand its community members and spatial land needs to ensure the long‐term sustainability of cemetery services over the next 25 years.

This plan begins with a service demands and land use needs analysis. This includes:

  • An in‐depth market analysis of the demographic, disposition, and interment trends in the Town’s regional cemetery market to determine future service demand. This is compared to the land available to estimate the cemetery’s current site capacity and future land needs.
  • A products and services review of Thornbury Clarksburg Union Cemetery’s current offerings.
  • A physical site analysis to identify the opportunities and constraints related to the optimization of inventory at the cemetery.

The plan will summarize the findings of the analyses, consultations, and engagement process, and provides informed recommendations for a phased plan for the development of new cemetery amenities and expansion. The plan will ensure an appropriate product mix to meet community member preferences and optimize the Town’s limited capital funding for future cemetery development.
