Request to Build in Moses Lake, Washington
Church representatives recently submitted a request to the City of Moses Lake to authorize construction of the Moses Lake Washington Temple and a new stake center on unplatted land. The resolution was placed on the City Council's consent agenda for routine approval at its regular meeting last night. The recommendation from City staff was that the resolution be approved with the requirement that the property be platted within one year. The resolution will allow building permits to be pulled before the platting process is finalized.
