Vernal Utah Temple Parking Expansion
Plans are underway to create additional parking and landscaping at the Vernal Utah Temple. Last year, the Church presented plans for a parking lot on the block east of the temple where the Church had acquired six residences and an empty lot. As City staff examined the request, however, they recommended that the street directly east of the temple and stake center also be vacated, which was approved by the City Council following a public hearing. A revised concept plan was created incorporating beautiful landscaping in front of the temple. The Vernal Planning Commission voted on the revised plan last week, recommending approval of a conditional use permit to the City Council.
