The Elk Falls Cemetery will be seeing some major upgrades this coming year.

Spokesperson Richard Cook presented to council Monday to approve of the master plan and construction of the first phase in 2016.

Cook says they hope to see a new main drive, gate and signage, as well as new shrubs and trees.

Council noted they want to see more parking spaces available for the public to eliminate people having to park on the highway.

The approximate budget will be $175,000.
