Stiffs & Land Use

The population bulge of Baby Boomers is kicking the bucket & their wave of influence is heading to the graveyards. The thing is, more and more people are choosing cremation over traditional burial. 42% of people are opting for cremation nowadays & that's freeing up some real estate in the boneyard while, at the same time, sparking an uptick in columbarium construction.
This could be another opportunity for the City of Cincinnati to exploit the vacant land at Wesleyan Cemetery on it's wester (rear) side.
The financial dept at Blogging Isn't Cool is all tied up decorating for Saturnalia right now so I can't give good numbers on what the ROI for a columbarium at the site would be but it would have to be better than just letting it sit there.
