Warner Robins neighborhood plans crematory protest

By Claudia Taylor

Residents in a Warner Robins neighborhood are holding out hope that construction will stop on a crematory that's being built next door to their subdivision.

More than 80 Rose Hill homeowners attended a neighborhood meeting Saturday to discuss plans to protest the Burpee-Scott Memorial Chapel, that's being built on Highway 41.

Charlie Toole and his neighbors say they're concerned that their property values will decline after the crematory is built.

They say they also want to avoid hazardous smoke, and fumes that they believe the crematory will produce.

Some people signed petitions, and made plans to attend the next city council meeting to discuss the issue.

Mayoral candidate Randy Toms and City Councilman Tim Thomas were at the meeting.

Thomas says he's willing to help the Rose Hill community in any way that he can.

The next city council meeting is scheduled for Monday, November 18.

Some Rose Hill residents say they'll protest at City Hall around 3:45 that afternoon.
