Estabishing Trees on the Elko Nevada Temple Grounds

A variety of deciduous and evergreen trees are appearing on the grounds of the Elko Nevada Temple. Most of the saplings are supported by two stakes on each side while they put down roots and begin to be established. Lamp posts have also been installed along the walkways that encircle the building. The temple is the third to be constructed in Nevada. A fourth was recently approved for construction on the west side of Las Vegas.

Preparing the Santiago West Chile Temple Site for Groundbreaking

In preparation for next month's groundbreaking for the Santiago West Chile Temple, demolition of the structures on site is underway, including a meetinghouse. The temple will rise in the Maipú district of Santiago, located in the southwest sector of the city. It will be the fourth temple built in Chile and the second built in Santiago. The Concepción Chile Temple was dedicated in 2018, and construction is wrapping up on the Antofagasta Chile Temple. A fifth Chilean temple has been announced for Viña del Mar.

City Council Approves Lone Mountain Nevada Temple Project

In a 7-0 vote, the Las Vegas City Council unanimously approved the proposal for the Lone Mountain Nevada Temple yesterday, following months of community debate. Church representatives agreed to lower the height of the originally proposed 216-foot steeple to 196 feet to avoid a Federal Aviation Authority mandate for a blinking red light at the top of buildings that are over 200 feet tall. The 70,194-square-foot temple will be built on a 20-acre site along with a 15,982-square-foot meetinghouse, a 1,807-square-foot grounds building, and a 1,800-square-foot pavilion.

Landscaping the Grounds of the Lindon Utah Temple

Around the perimeter of the Lindon Utah Temple site, fence panels are being installed and landscaping efforts are moving forward with the planting of trees and the spreading of mulch. Landscaping is also progressing in the west parking lot where a masonry fence was recently installed, and trees and shrubs are being established. Hardscaping continues on the north and south plazas, which feature beautiful stone-clad planters and pavers.
