PLEASANTON -- The city's living residents will get a chance to share their two cents' worth about future plans for the Pleasanton Pioneer Cemetery at a public meeting to be held July 17.

The meeting will give residents a chance to share their thoughts about the cemetery's master plan, including landscape improvements, a veterans memorial and expanded burial and cremation opportunities.

The meeting will be held at 6 p.m. at the city's operations services center, 3333 Busch Road.

The master plan process started in January with the private landscape architecture firm PGA Design working with a seven-member oversight committee and city staff. The master plan addresses both short-term and long-term improvements, a maintenance plan, business plan and operations rules.

The city-owned Pleasanton Pioneer Cemetery, 5780 Sunol Blvd., is one of only two cemeteries in town. St. Augustine's Cemetery is next to the city cemetery.
