Pete McQuillin, chief executive officer of Land Conservation Cemeteries, will seek a conditional use and a zoning amendment from the Penn Hills planning commission when it meets at 7 p.m. next Thursday in the municipal building.
There will be walking trails there for birders," Mr. McQuillin said.
"Mr. McQuillin talks about a green cemetery and how interesting it is.
"We have an agreement in principle with the property owners," Mr. McQuillin said. The real estate deal is contingent upon approval by Penn Hills planning commission and council, he said.
Land Conservation Cemeteries is buying the four acres "so we could run a driveway that didn't go anywhere near the neighbors," Mr. McQuillin said, adding that the driveway would be gravel.
Mr. McQuillin, who lives in the Spring Hill section of the city's North Side, is the founder of Green Burial Pittsburgh, a nonprofit educational group he started in 2008 to promote green burials. Land Conservation Cemeteries is a Pittsburgh-based for-profit that was incorporated in Pennsylvania on Dec. 24, 2009.
In Pennsylvania, cemeteries are overseen by the Department of State's real estate division, which ensures that people who sell plots are licensed and that an endowment fund is set up to properly maintain the grounds.
If the land is acquired, Mr. McQuillin said, "This will be the first exclusively green cemetery in the U.S. that's this close to a major metropolitan area.
