wants permission to offer cremation — again.
The first time the funeral home requested the change in zoning, with the possible change.
Shortly after, Keith Redmon, president of the funeral home, pulled his request.
"We are not willing to subject the grieving families we serve to the planned activities that have been threatened, nor are we willing to jeopardize the reputation we’ve built over 44 years in this community.
Additionally, we appreciate the vast majority of neighbors and residents who support our efforts to further invest in and expand our services here," in a statement issued to the media.
The new request was tabled until the Sept. 25 meeting by the Planning Commission this week so its members have more time to evaluate the proposed amendment further and become more educated about crematories.
