A new mausoleum at St Peter Cemetery in Danbury has been approved by the Danbury Planning Commission. The 800-square-foot structure would be built next to an existing mausoleum at 71 Lake Avenue Extension. The “garden-style” mausoleum would be on a 1-acre site where there is already an office and maintenance building. The facility will contain 264 crypts and 144 niche spaces. A memo to the Commission from the city’s Planning Department considers the plans satisfactory and there is no need for additional parking. A variance was previously approved by the Zoning Board of Appeals to reduce the yard around the proposed building.
