The head of the North Dakota National Guard has rejected a proposed lighting project at the North Dakota Veterans Cemetery.

Maj. Gen. David Sprynczynatyk, the state’s adjutant general, said he met with project boosters Friday morning and informed them of his decision.

“It doesn’t really fit with the ambiance, the reverence, the dignity of a cemetery,” he said, adding his staff researched the issue and couldn’t find another lighted veterans cemetery in the United States.

Boosters had raised about $200,000 of the anticipated $400,000 in private funds needed for the project, cemetery director Pamela Helbling-Schafer said. Sprynczynatyk said that money will be returned to the donors or, if they so choose, donated to the foundation that supports the cemetery.
