Re-Envisioning Intermountain West Cemeteries »

September 10, 2021 11:20 am

The Re-Envisioning of Intermountain West Cemeteries aims to create environmentally rich, thoughtfully planned, walkable green spaces that celebrate the macro (community) and micro (individual) history of an area. This is done in three parts: 1. Planning, through policies and procedure to ensure cities allow for best practices; 2. Landscaping, creating water-wise, eco-beneficial landscapes that highlight an area's native flora and fauna; and 3. History and Preservation, memorializing community and individual histories through art, memorials and intentional care of records and headstones. By weaving these three project aspects together, communities will be empowered to create impactful community spaces.
