Project List

Volunteers for placing flags - Flags will be placed on Veteran's graves by volunteers for Memorial Day.  There are over 750 flags to be placed through-out the cemetery.  Placing of the flags will be done on Thursday and Friday the 23rd and 24th of May, between the hours of 8:30 am and 3:30 pm.  Please check in at the office for direction, explanation and flags.  There will be extra flags left on the bench in the office/shop parking lot over the weekend in case someone discovers a Veteran's grave without a flag.  The Atascadero Cemetery thanks the VFW, Elks Lodge and our community volunteers in advance for their work.  The VFW's Memorial Day Ceremony will start at 11am in Section P at the flag pole on Monday, May 27th. Contact Cindy at 805-466-1242 with any questions.

Roads -  CCM, Inc. has been hired for compliance.  The repaving from Highway 41 up to the office/shop area has been completed.  The fill and patching of the interior roads of the cemetery has been completed.  The project was awarded to Toste Grading & Paving, Inc. by the Trustees at the 10-17-23 meeting.  Work started January 23, 2024.  Most of the cemetery roads are open while work is being completed.  Please drive slow and carefully and be mindful around the large equipment.

Tree work - Approved by Trustees 7-19-2023, project started 8-21-2023.  Three stages of work have been identified.  Dangerous trees that are 1. dead or dropping limbs  2. dying  3. the side hill in Section N.    From time to time there will be wood stacked on the side of the roads that can be picked up by members of the public at no cost for personal use.  You must bring your own truck or trailer and load wood yourself.  Keep vehicles on the road, do not drive on to the grassy burial areas, wood that is available for pick up will be accessible from the road.  Contact the office at 805-466-1242 for availability.  Davey tree service is doing tree work that interferes with PG&E lines.



Replace broken concrete water pipe - This is being done in sections, which allows us to continue minimal watering. The areas of the leak have been identified and the pipe and fittings are being replaced, This project is about 50% done.  There may be areas of dead grass due to the limitations of watering  on one side of Section P, Section A and G. while this project is being completed. The project is scheduled to be completed by late spring of 2024.

Cleaning of the slippage along the hillside is Section N - This work was done through the SLO County Sheriff's  Alternative Work Program.  Work started on 9-20-2023.  The debris was removed and the stones and rocks were lined up along the bottom of the hillside.  The project was completed on 10-11-2023.  There are 2 pictures below from the area at the beginning and  2 pictures at the end of the project.

A pergola, covering an existing bench was built as an Eagle Scout project in Section D - Francisco Chavez is a senior at Paso Robles High School.  He is currently in the Paso Robles Boy Scouts, Troop 60, and has been involved with the Scouts since he was in the 4th grade.  Francisco's Eagle Scout Project idea evolved after a conversation with cemetery staff about the sun that hits one of the benches, and how much nicer and more comfortable it would be to provide shade for that area.  Francisco thanks, Paso Robles Lowes for donating supplies and Weyrick Lumber for donating the needed building materials.  The Trustee's and staff of the cemetery thank Francisco for his work.
