The City is beginning the expansion of Grand View Cemetery in the next month. The work includes poplar tree removal and other tree clearing near Hill Crest Drive to build a stormwater detention pond and make road repairs within the cemetery. Large trees at the south end of the expansion will be conserved. The reason for this work is that Grand View is running out of available cemetery lots. The clearing work done this fall and winter will make way for expanding the cemetery and adding over 150 new trees in 2021. Please contact Anacortes Parks and Recreation for more information.
