For members of the First Congregational Church of Tallmadge, UCC, a proposed columbarium on church grounds would be a sacred place to inter those who have died. However, many neighbors of the proposed site say they are opposed to such a structure rising in their midst. “A columbarium should be located in a cemetery and not in our neighborhood,” according to a petition signed by 34 surrounding property owners. Attached is a video from the April 6 Tallmadge Planning and Zoning meeting. Look for a story in Sunday's Express.
