Civic Memorial Cemetery Mausoleum Expansion

The mausoleum, located at Civic Memorial Cemetery (365 Second Ave. North), was originally constructed in 2000. It has been expanded over five phases resulting in a total of 788 crypts for caskets and 1,966 niches for cremations.

As of December 2019, there are no crypt spaces available, and based on historic sales, the inventory for niche spaces will require replenishment by 2023.

Considering historic sales for interior crypts, a further expansion of the mausoleum to add an additional 120 crypts was presented to City Council as part of 2021 budget deliberations. As there are economies of scale to add interior niches during any expansion and construction of the mausoleum facility, it was also recommended that the project include 700 interior niches to ensure there is inventory for future demand.

The business case for expansion of the mausoleum was approved by City Council as part of the 2021 budget process. In July 2021, a Request for Proposal for architectural services was awarded to Perry + Perry Architects Inc.

The proposed Civic Memorial Cemetery Mausoleum Expansion has an estimated construction cost of $2,050,000.
