MONTEBELLO : Study Ordered on Proposed Mausoleum

March 03, 1994|PSYCHE PASCUAL

The City Council has ordered an environmental study before deciding whether a controversial two-story mausoleum should be built at Resurrection Cemetery.

The city Planning Commission previously approved a request by the Catholic Archdiocese of Los Angeles to build the mausoleum. But residents, many from neighboring Monterey Park, contended the structure would clash with the graveyard's park-like setting, block homeowners' views and attract graffiti.

Monterey Park City Council members last year asked for a review of the church's plans after hundreds of residents signed a petition opposing the project.

The report is scheduled to be finished at the end of July and will be paid for by the archdiocese.
