Site Plan Approved for the Knoxville Tennessee Temple

The Farragut Municipal Planning Commission unanimously approved the site plan for the Knoxville Tennessee Temple at its commission meeting last month. Commissioner Noah Myers said, "This is going to be a heck of an architectural piece in the Town of Farragut…It’s pretty awesome." The granite-veneer building will stand 122 feet high, and the grounds will feature walking trails along the length of its Kingston Pike’s frontage and Fleenor Road frontage, as well as connections into the site with trails and sidewalks.
