About AFOH

The major challenge in developing the shared cemetery Master Plan was to develop a common vision that both the City and Texas A&M could embrace, without undermining the distinctiveness that the City and University both desired to maintain as burial grounds for the City’s residents, the former students, staff, and friends of the University. Members of the City Council made it clear in their July 13, 2006 workshop that this was a municipal cemetery first. Yet, it was understood that the Aggie section must be distinctive and clearly identifiable as the Field of Honor.

A consultant team, working with the Cemetery Advisory Committee, held a series of public meetings and a design charette to allow for public input, foster discussion, and establish a common vision that would achieve the objectives of both the City and Texas A&M. With the knowledge gained during the public meeting and design charette, the consultant team and advisory committee explored different options that provided distinct, sustainable, and flexible design options that could be incorporated into the Cemetery Master Plan.
