Meaford's cemeteries are beautiful, calm and tranquil greenspaces with deep roots in our local heritage.

Cemetery Master Plan

The Municipality of Meaford is currently developing a new strategic master plan for Lakeview Cemetery. This master plan will provide an overall vision for the cemetery for the next 50 years.

Working alongside Lee and Associates, the Municipality has identified five key objectives for the master plan which includes; design future burial areas within the cemetery, align future services with existing infrastructure, ensure that the cemetery effectively serves the changing needs of the community, provide updates to cemetery bylaws, and establish a program that supports the maintenance of the landscape, including a long-term infrastructural improvement plan.

The purpose of this plan is to ensure that Lakeview Cemetery is sustainable for many years to come and meets the needs of our growing community.

We want to hear from you! We invite you, our community members, to participate in the process. You can submit your feedback with our survey and you can attend our upcoming public meet and greet sessions.
