Stop The Wake Memorial Crematorium

    1. Petition by

      Residents of Cary NC


Wake Memorial Park, LLC has submitted plans to the Town of Cary for approval to develop a crematorium on the Wake Memorial Park cemetery site located on Green Hope School Road.  Crematoriums emit toxins into the environment including mercury which are harmful to nearby residents, especially their children.  Other localities across the United States have prohibited the development of crematoriums within residential neighborhoods due to health concerns and the overall lack of information around just how harmful these facilities can be.  Please help keep the neighborhoods and schools near the Wake Memorial Park cemetery safe by signing this petition that requests the Town of Cary to stop the development of this crematorium.

      I am pleased to report that in direct response to the strong support of our community, Wake Memorial Park LLC has withdrawn their request to develop a crematorium at the Wake Memorial Park cemetery. Thank you all for spreading the word and growing our list of signatures to over 300 people in just over one day. I would also like to thank Wake Memorial Park LLC and Robert A Brady, Attorney at Law for their swift response and for ultimately taking the appropriate course of action in the best interest of our community. While there is no mention that this will be taken back to the Town of Cary for approval at a later date, I would ask each of you to be prepared should this request be resubmitted in the future and your support is once again needed.

      I just built a home in Cary because I wanted to live in an area that supports the environment and living a healthy lifestyle. This concerns me gravely. The residents should not be subjected to toxic fumes. :(
