The draft masterplan for the city's second cemetery is set to showcase a rural vista for people to rest, and pay their respects in.
The plan has been divided into three stages to cater for its future growth, and includes a crematorium, outdoor chapel and associated facilities, and a public mausoleum.
The land located along Rifle Range Road also includes a swale, or shallow channel, which directs water into two ponds.
Many of the features included in the plan have been as a result of a pubic meeting in September 2019.
Members of Griffith's community cemetery working group are encouraging people to examine the plan and provide their feedback before the end of next month.
The grassroots group has previously outlined concerns for the existing cemetery and provided feedback to help design the second cemetery last year.
Spokeswoman Carmel La Rocca said the working group had some concerns about the role water played in the masterplan, and how stormwater was handled.
"I don't know why they want to make water and Burley Griffin a feature, that's in the past," Ms La Rocca said.
Among the working group's concerns was the water would stagnate during dry times and create a breeding ground for mosquitoes, as well as issues around the water table and soil types.
Ms La Rocca said goal had to be ensuring the new cemetery was easy to maintain and use and was pleasant for mourners and visitors.
"A greenfield site provides a great opportunity to design it for the purpose for which it's intended," she said.
Ms La Rocca encouraged the community to examine the plan and share their feedback.
"People need to contribute their ideas, we've got an opportunity to have real input," she said.
"It's good to see council has finally moved on this, it's been in the pipeline for a long time."
Deputy mayor and general facilities committee chairman Doug Curran said he welcomed the community's thoughts.
"A cemetery is something which is close to all of our hearts and we want to ensure this new plan caters to the future needs of our growing community," Councillor Curran said.
"One aspect which has garnered much interest is the proposed crematorium, something which has been identified as needed in Griffith.
"I would like to encourage members of the community to view the masterplan on council's website and provide feedback to help guide us through this planning stage."
Submissions close on July 31. The masterplan can be found on Griffith City Council's website here.
