Area requirements for pet cemeteries
General Business (GBS) CHAPTER 20, ARTICLE 35-C
§ 750-p. Area requirements for pet cemeteries. A pet cemetery which
commences operations on or after the effective date of this article and
which provides for the permanent interment of pets shall consist of not
less than five contiguous acres of real property in total area,
inclusive of any structures, facilities, or buildings situated thereon
and used for the business purposes of the pet cemetery. The secretary of
state may grant a waiver of the minimum size limit based on factors
including the number of above-ground entombments, the number of remains
buried and the nature of the surrounding community. Nothing contained in
this section shall restrict any town, village or city from enacting any
local law which provides for an area requirement greater than as set
forth herein.
