Pleasant Valley Cemetery
Tombstone Quarry



The overall outline for the cemetery addresses six broad areas.
I.            HISTORY
II.           ISSUES
VI.          ACTIONS
The cemetery history covers its beginning with the Southern Pacific Railroad in the 1880s, its use as a pioneer cemetery, and finally as a continuing operational cemetery by the Pleasant Valley Cemetery Association.
Issues are subjects or questions of concern in management of the cemetery.  Issues can be unresolved questions about management actions and/or a resource or use that may have significant or unacceptable environmental impacts.
Inventories describe the physical, biological, and socioeconomic character of the cemetery.  An assessment of resources that could be affected are emphasized.  Understanding the cemetery’s existing conditions is the basis for identifying potential projects and taking actions.
Networking reflects the idea of stakeholders sharing information. 
Potential projects are an identification of what needs to be done and possible ways of accomplishment.
Actions are what we actually accomplished on the ground.
