Springfield Funeral Home in Kelowna wants to build a two-storey crematorium next to its existing location.

The proposed project includes the renovation of the OK Tire Shop located at Springfield and Ambrosi roads.

The crematorium will act as an addition to the existing funeral home (2020 Springfield Road), according to documents submitted to city hall. Both lots are owned by the same company (Kelowna Crematorium Ltd.).

“The two lots combined can create a bigger community/service space for the neighborhood, with greater accessibility and ease,” the documents state.
