County Commissioners Vote Down building of a Controversial Crematory in a Tucker Neighborhood

Atlanta, GA-- (AP) Earlier this month, dozens of neighborhood residents cheered the Gwinnett County planning commission's rejection of the proposed crematory. The Bill Head Funeral Home applied for a special-use permit that would allow the business to construct a 436-square-foot incinerator that would sit about 100 feet from several homes and within a half-mile of 17 subdivisions.

 

Residents told the panel that they were concerned about the potential odor and that they feared a crematory would negatively affect their property values and emit toxins. Some experts have said such fears are unfounded.

The county's planning department has also recommended denial of the application.
