Design Review for the Provo Utah Temple

Plans for the new Provo Utah Temple go before the Provo City Design Review Committee next Thursday. The larger and taller building would be a complete replacement of the existing temple. Temple Hill Drive, the street located west of the temple site, would be vacated and become part of the new grounds. The new temple would be constructed slightly west of the existing building, allowing for ample parking around the entire edifice and reducing the slope that patrons must climb to enter the House of the Lord.

Planned Design Unveiled for the Provo Utah Temple

Church officials have given the public a glimpse of the planned design for the Provo Utah Temple, which will be reconstructed following the dedication of the Orem Utah Temple. The three-story edifice will stand at the same location as the existing building and feature striking gold accents including the spire. Just as it was constructed originally, the temple will not have an angel Moroni statue. A statue was added in 2003 as part of a renovation project that also turned the spire from gold to white. No specific date for the closure of the temple has been announced.
