  Oakland Alive - Cemetery Master Plan The Historic Oakland Cemetery Master Plan Survey is online now and they would appreciate your input. As Oakland Cemetery remains an ever-popular tourist destination and as more people begin moving in and around Memorial Drive, the cemetery's master plan has to evolve.

This plan will help the Foundation manage change and better position the cemetery for long-term sustainability. We hope that you will join us.
