The Public is Invited to a Site Walk Today for the Proposed Bethel Crematorium, Starts at 10:00 a.m.
Be sure to attend the site walk today, Jan. 17, for the proposed crematorium, at 10:00 a.m. at 12 Trowbridge Drive in Clarke Business Park in Bethel, CT. The Planning and Zoning Commission members will be there and the public is also invited.
The proposed building plans for the crematorium are available for viewing at the Tax Assessor’s office or the Land Use office in the Clifford J. Hurgin Municipal Center, 1 School Street in Bethel, CT. Check the town website for office hours.
See a sneak peek of the plans here (see below). Shown is one of the pages of the crematorium plans here, in a close up view and full view, which shows an overview of the placement of the building on the property, and other details, and the applicant’s present building, in proximity. Trowbridge Drive runs down the left side of the two maps. Click on the image to enlarge it. Please note this is only one page of the plans, there is much more including an elevation view.
If approved, the new 5,000 square foot crematorium building would be located in Clarke Business Park, at 12 Trowbridge Drive, the same property where the crematorium applicant has his other business, Mono-Crete Step Co., LLC, a concrete products company.
NOTE: There is also a building diagonally across from the proposed crematorium site that is up for sale at 13 Trowbridge Drive. See: http://www.loopnet.com/Listing/18890170/13-Trowbridge-Drive-Bethel-CT/ I believe this property was listed about a month ago.

NNN.” A second building is for sale on Grassy Plain at 184 Grassy Plain Street, which is near Francis J. Clarke Circle in the Clarke Business Park.
