Expansion of the cemetery area on the grounds of the Christ Cathedral campus won approval from the Garden Grove Planning Commission last Thursday.

Planners voted to approve the completion – with certain changes – of a previously approved enlargement of the Memorial Gardens at Lewis Street and Chapman Avenue.

Approved were an enlargement of the interment area and the construction of three new buildings: an administrative office, a cremation niche building and a maintenance building. The site plan also calls for modification of the maximum building height requirements for those structures.

A request for a conditional use permit to demolish an existing 50-foot tall pole sign and to replace it with a new 59-foot tall V-shaped, freeway-oriented electronic reader board sign for Next Sports was also approved. That’s an indoor sports facility located at 12821 Knott St. The sign will face the Garden Grover (22) Freeway.
