SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

During a Tuesday evening meeting, the Iowa City City Council voted 7-0 to approve a request for a new cemetery to be developed.

In conjunction with the council, the city’s Planning and Zoning Committee reviewed a request submitted to Johnson County by the Al-Iman Center to allow development of a cemetery north of 4401 Sharon Center Road S.W.

The Johnson County Zoning Code requires review by the city for all conditional-use permits for property in the Fringe Area.

Because the site for the condition us is outside the Iowa City growth boundary, the proposed site would unlikely have negative effects on the existing or planned development in Iowa City in the near future.
