County Rejects Planned Crematorium

The proposal of a funeral home to build a crematorium in Bucks County has been rejected by a county judge. This comes after the proposal has also failed to receive the green light from Tullytown.

The county judge rejected the proposal after oral arguments were made. The funeral home wants to build the crematorium on an area that has been designated as light industrial. They are arguing whether operating a crematorium should be permissible there.

Here is a portion of an article by Vic Monaco for Phillyburbs.com:

“Judge Albert Cepparulo rejected the land use appeal from Louis Galzerano on March 12, after accepting written briefs and hearing oral arguments. His ruling simply affirmed borough decisions in November and January.

Galzerano wanted to open a crematorium at 71 Fox Drive in the Lucisano Brothers Industrial Park. The zoning there, light industrial, allows for a funeral home operation and “ancillary” services, according to Galzerano’s appeal. He and his attorney argued that the crematorium should be considered an “ancillary” service.

However, zoning officer Sally Bellaspica rejected Galzerano’s occupancy and use application in November, saying the crematory would be the only operation on the site, not an “ancillary” one. And Tullytown’s zoning hearing board voted unanimously in late January to uphold Bellaspica’s decision. It argued the principal use of a crematory on the site is not a permitted use.

Borough representatives and residents also contended a crematorium is the equivalent of an incinerator. But Galzerano and his attorney said the process is regulated by the state Department of Environmental Protection, and fumes from cremations are not allowed to be released into the air.”
