City wants cemetery on national register


“They want to spend their money on national registered properties,” Duncan said.

The city will apply for the grant next year.

The cemetery project is also among 12 applicants vying for a share of the estimated $400,000 that could be doled out this year as part of the city’s new Community Preservation Act. Applications for that funding are due by early April, and a committee is expected to recommend which projects should be funded by May. Each project must get final approval from the City Council.
