Jefferson Barracks National Cemetery running out of room.

St. Louis, MO ( KTRS ) St. Louis County is considering selling around 38 acres of parkland to the federal government for the Jefferson Barracks National Cemetery, which is expected to run out of space for graves in the coming years.

But opponents say the plan is at best a short-term fix and they view selling portions of Sylvan Springs County Park as an encroachment on a neighborhood asset.

Jefferson Barrack officials say the cemetery is expected to run out of space between 2021 and 2027.

The additional 38 acres are estimated to meet the demand for military personnel and immediate family burials through approximately 2038.
