35-21-821. Effect of dedication. (1) The filed map or plat and the recorded declaration are constructive notice to all persons of the dedication of the property to interment purposes.
(2) After property is dedicated to interment purposes, neither the dedication nor the title of a plot owner may be affected by the dissolution of the mausoleum-columbarium authority, by nonuse on its part, by alienation of the property, by any encumbrances, by sale under execution, or otherwise, except as provided in this part.
(3) Dedication to interment purposes pursuant to this section is not invalid as violating any laws against perpetuities or the suspension of the power of alienation of title to or use of property but is expressly permitted and must be considered to be in respect for the dead, a provision for the interment of human remains, and a duty to and for the benefit of the general public.
(4) After dedication and as long as the property remains dedicated to interment purposes, a railroad, street, road, alley, pipeline, pole line, or other public thoroughfare utility may not be laid out through, over, or across any part of the property without the consent of the mausoleum-columbarium authority owning and operating the property or of not less than two-thirds of the owners of interment plots within the property.
