Burley Temple, Farmington Temple, and Grand Junction Temple Locations Announced
In yet another multi-temple announcement today, the locations of three future temples were revealed – the Burley Idaho Temple, the Farmington New Mexico Temple, and the Grand Junction Colorado Temple. What a blessing these temples will be to the Latter-day Saints in their respective areas!
Burley Idaho Temple
The Burley Temple will be located on a 10.1-acre site located at 40 South and 150 East. Initial plans call for a two-story temple of around 38,600 square feet. This will be the seventh temple in the state of Idaho. The sixth temple is the Pocatello Temple that is currently under construction.
Farmington New Mexico Temple
The Farmington Temple will be built on a 6.62-acre site located at the intersection of College Boulevard and Windsor Drive. Initial plans call for a single-story structure of roughly 25,000 square feet. A new meetinghouse will also be built on the same site.
The Farmington Temple will be the second temple in the state of New Mexico, following the Albuquerque Temple.
Grand Junction Colorado Temple
The Grand Junction Temple will be built on a 6.94-acre site at the intersection of Horizon Drive and North 12th Street. Just like the Farmington Temple, this too will be a single-story temple of approximately 25,000 square feet.
The Grand Junction Temple will be the third temple in the state of Colorado, following the Denver Temple and the Fort Collins Temple.
Of course these are just early announcements, so more detailed design plans for all three of these temples are still being developed. Interior renderings, as well as more information, will be made public at a later time. Groundbreaking dates have not been set yet either. In the coming months, project leaders will begin working with city officials to make plans more official.
