Funeral home considering new location for controversial crematory - Black Mountain News

Monday, October 24, 2016

Any smoke left after the incineration is recirculated through a system of purifying baffles before being expelled into the air.All machines are tested at the company’s facility in Apopka, Florida before being shipped, he said.Collins' comments came as a result of Harwood's request that his West State Street business be rezoned to highway business from central business. A public hearing was supposed to be held Oct. 10 on that request, but a problem with Buncombe County's geographic information system resulted in the town mailing notices to residents and businesses within 166 feet of the funeral home, not the 200 feet required by law. The public hearing has been rescheduled for Nov. 7.Harwood said about 10 people accepted his invitation to visit his funeral home after the aldermen meeting.“Some people already have their mind made up,” he said in a recent interview. “I brought in a person that could answer questions about the very machine I’m looking to buy, and that was all that showed.”Harwood said he's considering placing the cremation machine in a newly constructed building adjacent to the Mountain View Memorial Park, the cemetery on Tabernacle Road he bought earlier this year. If he did that, he would have to ask the the town of Black Mountain to annex the land. And he'd have to retrofit the building to house the machine - an additional expense.“I’ll have to jump through hoops,” he said. “All this is prolonging what I need to do to take care of my business.“I already pay taxes on my home, which is in the city,” he said. “I also pay taxes for my business, which is also in the city. If I go the route of putting the cremation machine out there, which would require the town annexing it, I’d be paying taxes on another location.”Harwood Home for Funerals' current and requested zoning allows for crematories. Rick Harwood said he requested the rezoning for reasons beyond adding space for an incinerator."That building is almost 90 years old; it was built in 1928,” he said. “I have improvements I would like to make, and I can’t alter the footprint of it (because of) how it’s currently zoned.”The board of aldermen will consider his rezoning request at its November meeting. Black Mountain's land use code does not allow the town to prohibit the funeral home from offering cremation services, town manager Matt Settlemyer said."He (Harwood) has the right to put this machine in his building right now, according to state statute," he said. "The only reason he needs to rezone is if he wants to expand the footprint of the building."The business' current zoning bars Harwood from expanding or altering the building, even to make general improvements, Settlemyer said.If Harwood decides to request annexation for Mountain View Memorial Park, the town could likely accommodate him, according to Settlemyer. The voluntary annexation process could take around 90 days and would also involve a rezoning of the land involved. But Harwood doesn't consider annexation as a solution."What if I get to that point and neighbors of the cemetery come out and protest it?" he said. "Currently I could put (a cremation machine) right in the building I have in town, but not necessarily in the building at the cemetery."Read or Share thi...

Funeral homes and churches offer services for Pulse shooting victims - Orlando Sentinel

Monday, July 04, 2016

Proudfit said.A number of Central Florida churches offered free services.Florida Hospital Church in downtown Orlando, Metro Church in Winter Springs, Forest Lake Seventh-day Adventist Church in Apopka and Forest City Spanish Adventist Church in Altamonte Springs have all volunteered to conduct services at no cost.Forest Lake pastors extended their offer after hearing families were concerned churches might refuse to hold funerals for LGBT victims."I think it was a question of, 'will we be accepted at Christian churches in the area?'" said Bernie Anderson, youth pastor for the roughly 3,700-person congregation.Central Florida atheists are also stepping forward to aid families.David Williamson, founder of the Central Florida Freethought Community, said his group will cover the costs of non-religious services for any of those killed in the shooting."It's very easy to fall back on the ideas that … perhaps this is part of God's plan," Williamson said. "Those things feel really good to say and hear if you believe them, but if you don't, it's actually a painful thing.".Staff writer Linda Trischitta contributed to this report.jinman@orlandsentinel.com or 407-420-5002 and brodgers@tribpub.com or 407-420-5189...
