Local News

SARATOGA SPRINGS, Utah (ABC4 News)- Plans for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saint’s Saratoga Springs Temple were released Tuesday.

The temple was announced in April 2017. It will be located in the new Beacon Pointe subdivision, west of Redwood Road and north of Meadow Side Drive, church officials said.

The temple will be three stories and about 87,000 square feet. A 21,000 square-foot meetinghouse will be built next door. 

Local businesses are looking forward to the economic boost the temple might bring. Before being dedicated, temples are open to the public for about a month and a half of tours. Other temples in Utah have drawn more than 700,000 people for the Open House. 

There are currently 17 operating LDS temples in Utah; Saratoga Springs is one of four more announced or under construction.
