The Tracy Public Cemetery District ceremonially broke ground Wednesday on the first phase of the new cemetery on Valpico Road about a mile west of the intersection with Corral Hollow Road. The district bought 23 acres from the Zambetti Family Trust last year and expects to begin construction within a few weeks. District Trustee Richard Paulson said during the ceremony that the new cemetery would provide between 60 and 100 years of service before the community needs to build another site. The six-acre first phase will include a small shop, a veterans section and a small home for a full-time caretaker.
