17-1375. Cemetery corporation; selling excess real estate; conditions. Any cemetery corporation to which real estate was deeded and restricted to be used only for cemetery purposes prior to 1909 and such deed was coupled with a trust for the benefit of not-for-profit charitable beneficiaries, other than cemetery lot owners, may sell any excess part of such real estate that has not been platted into burial plots free from such trust and restrictions after a written determination by its trustees that such real estate is excess real estate that will not be reasonably required for cemetery purposes. Such determination shall include a written finding by the trustees determining that the following further conditions have been or will be satisfied and in compliance with K.S.A. 2017 Supp. 17-1376, and amendments thereto:

(b) the cemetery corporation will record restrictions or include restrictions in the deed of conveyance prohibiting the use of the excess real estate for sepulture, mortuary or crematorium uses;

(c) such excess real estate is not reasonably required for future sepulture purposes considering all remaining real estate owned by the cemetery corporation will remain restricted to use solely for sepulture purposes;

(d) the proceeds of such sale shall be used solely for the purposes of meeting maintenance and reserve requirements and for the benefit of the beneficiaries of the trust all as approved in writing by the beneficiaries of the trust;

(e) the sale contract including the proposed use, a development plan showing the location of all proposed improvements with a reasonable buffer zone between the improvements and all real estate platted into burial plots and any restrictions on use of the real estate by the purchaser shall be approved in writing by the beneficiaries of the trust; and

(f) the sale contract including the proposed use, a development plan showing the location of all proposed improvements with a reasonable buffer zone between the improvements and all real estate platted into burial plots and any restrictions on use of the real estate by the purchaser shall be approved by the attorney general as being in accordance with the public interest of the trust.
