Clarington assumes ownership of Lakeview Cemetery, Newtonville

The municipality is assuming ownership and control of the Lakeview Cemetery in Newtonville, which dates back to the 1830s. The existing private cemetery board informed staff of their retirement and of a lack of interest in filling their positions. If the cemetery were to become abandoned, responsibility for it would transfer to the Municipality, and transitioning ownership now with the existing Board is a more efficient process. The board transfered ownership of the cemetery to Clarington on January 1, 2024.
