Maps showing the locations of three new temples in Idaho, Colorado and New Mexico were released Wednesday by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
The three temples in the western United States — Burley, Idaho; Farmington, New Mexico; and Grand Junction, Colorado — were announced by President Russell M. Nelson at the end of last April’s general conference.
Detailed design plans for these temples are still being developed. Project leaders will soon start working with city officials in these locations on preliminary plans for the temples. Groundbreaking dates have not been set, according to a news release.
Where will the Burley Idaho Temple be built?
The Burley Idaho Temple will be constructed on a 10.1-acre site located at 40 South and 150 East. Plans show a two-story temple of approximately 38,600 square feet.
The Burley Temple will be the seventh in Idaho, joining temples in Boise, Idaho Falls, Meridian, Rexburg, Twin Falls and Pocatello, which is nearing completion.
Where will the Farmington New Mexico Temple be built?
The Farmington New Mexico Temple will be built on a 6.62-acre site located at the intersection of College Boulevard and Windsor Drive. Plans call for a single-story temple of approximately 25,000 square feet and a meetinghouse on-site.
The Farmington temple will be the second in New Mexico. The other temple is in Albuquerque.
Where will the Grand Junction Colorado Temple be built?
The Grand Junction temple will be built on a 6.94-acre site at the intersection of Horizon Drive and North 12th Street. Plans call for a single-story temple of about 25,000 square feet.
The Grand Junction temple will give Colorado three temples, with the other two located in Denver and Fort Collins.
