Fairview Cemetery and West Haven Cemetery will undergo renovations this summer.
At Fairview Cemetery, the City is repairing and installating a new ceiling for the mausoleum after the current ceiling suffered water damage. Additionally, the historic, decorative stone retaining wall is being shored up and repaired with like-materials. The City is also replacing a chain-link portion of fencing with a new metal fencing that will match the historic rod-iron. Additionally, all rod-iron throughout the cemetery will be repaired and restored.
At West Haven, the City is milling and resurfacing the roadway into the cemetery. As you enter the cemetery, there will be a new arched-style gate (similar to the current one at Fairview) installed, and the current chain-link fence will be replaced with decorative metal fencing.
“It’s very important that we are respectful to those who take great pride in making New Albany their longtime home, and equally as important to be respectful to those who choose to make New Albany their final resting place,” stated Mayor Gahan.
