The South Bend Common Council will consider a controversial proposal Monday night that would put a crematorium directly behind a local neighborhood.

Zahoran Funeral Home wants to put a crematorium inside an industrial building at 1731 South Franklin St. That’s about a half mile from the funeral home where the owners say they have no room to expand.

But, those living near the proposed site say they are worried about how it could impact their property values and quality of life.

The council must approve a special zoning exeption in order for the funeral home to move forward with its plans.

They will take the issue up during their regular meeting Monday at 7 p.m.
