The Cemetery, Parks, and Public Spaces Board is a group of appointed Edwardsville residents tasked with policy input and guidance for items related to the City's parks, cemeteries, and other public spaces. The group normally meets on the second Wednesday of each month. The August meeting has been rescheduled for Wednesday, August 25, beginning at 6:00 p.m. The primary reason for the rescheduling is to allow time for the City's partner in the River Front Redevelopment Project, Stantenc Inc., more time to prepare for the kickoff meeting for this effort. Stantec received final approval from the Edwardsville City Council at the group's meeting on Monday, August 9. The August 25 meeting is also expected to include the following items on the agenda:
- Securing access to the historic cemetery in central Edwardsville
- A review of the mowing contract at the City Cemetery
- Review of AutumnFest planning
A final agenda will be posted online HERE prior to the meeting. This meeting is open to the public to attend.
