Santa Clarita Council Approves Eternal Valley Memorial Park Expansion
At regular meeting on Tuesday the Santa Clarita City Hall voted to approve the expansion of the Eternal Valley Memorial Park near Highway 14.
On June 7, 2022, the Planning Commission held a public hearing to proposed project in Eternal Valley. With a 3–0 vote, the planning commission passed a resolution recommending that city council also approve the expansion.
The existing cemetery has existed since the late 1800s. On July 15, 1969, the County Deputy Board issued a memorandum reaffirming that the project site was legally established as a cemetery.
The project aims to extend the cemetery into previously undisturbed areas, as the project site is surrounded by undeveloped land, a business park, the recently developed center at Needham Ranch (CANR) and includes a ridgeline designated important. The site was previously approved as a cemetery by the county.
The expansion project would include the use of this surrounding land for the use of a cemetery as well as the construction of a wall of decorative blocks as a visual and sound buffer and the updating of the architecture of the proposed mausoleum.
The area would create approximately 13 acres of new cemetery inventory area, generating area for approximately 15,000 casket interment spaces and 6,000 cremation interment spaces. The new mausoleum would provide space for 780 coffins as well as 560 cremation niches.
In a 4-0 vote, with council member Cameron Smythe absent from the week’s meeting, the council voted to approve the Eternal Valley motion.
All information about the project is available here.
