Plans to construct the Syracuse Utah Temple were announced at General Conference on April 5, 2020, by President Russell M. Nelson. This House of the Lord will be the 24th temple constructed in Utah and will ease demands on the Ogden Utah Temple, which currently serves the members of 63 stakes. It will be Davis County's third temple, joining the Bountiful Utah Temple and Layton Utah Temple. There are 2.1 million Church members in Utah, comprising approximately two-thirds of the state's population.3
