Layton Utah Temple
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has released an exterior rendering showing the planned design of the Layton Utah Temple. The release of the rendering comes as project leaders are preparing to file additional public documents relating to plans for the temple’s design. A groundbreaking date has not been set yet.
Russell M. Nelson, president and prophet of The Church of Jesus Christ of latter-day Saints, announced that a temple will be built in Layton, Utah, during the 188th annual general conference in April 2018. Plans call for a three-story temple of more than 87,000 square feet. The temple will be built on an 11.8-acre site located at the corner of Oak Hills Drive and Rosewood Lane in Layton City, about 25 miles north of Salt Lake City, Utah.
Utah currently has 17 operating temples. In addition to Layton, temples have also been announced in Orem, Saratoga Springs, Taylorsville, Tooele Valley and Washington County. The Layton Utah Temple will be the second Latter-day Saint temple in Davis County.
