The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has released the locations of three temples announced in April 2021 by Church President Russell M. Nelson.
The Church’s new temple in Farmington, New Mexico, will be the second temple in the state after the Albuquerque New Mexico Temple.
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 temple in Colorado’s Western Slope region will be located on a 6.94-acre site at the intersection of Horizon Drive and North 12th Street. Plans call for a single-story temple of roughly 25,000 square feet.
The Burley Idaho Temple will be built on a 10.1-acre site located at 40 South and 150 East. Plans call for a two-story temple of approximately 38,600 square feet.
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.
