Informational kiosk approved for Union Cemetery

in Community/Featured/Headline and

An informational kiosk will be installed in historic Union Cemetery following unanimous approval by the Redwood City Planning Commission on Tuesday.

The kiosk will measure 10-feet, 2-inches in height and 7-feet, 7 inches in width. It was reviewed and approved last month by the Historic Resources Advisory Committee, which is protocol for any alteration or improvement to an historic resource. The kiosk will be constructed out of wood and the design will include “ornate architectural detailing underneath the gables” in order to blend in with other cemetery structures.

Union Cemetery was designated a California State Landmark in 1967, placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1983, and designated a Redwood City Landmark in 1989, according to city documents.
