On 5 April 2020, during the 190th annual general conference of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, President Russell M. Nelson announced that a temple will be built in Syracuse, Utah. The Syracuse Utah Temple will be the 24th temple constructed in Utah and the third temple built in Davis County, following the Bountiful Utah Temple (1995) and the Layton Utah Temple (announced).

There are 2.1 million Church members in Utah, comprising approximately two-thirds of the state's population. The Syracuse Utah Temple will ease the demands of the Ogden Utah Temple, which currently serves the members of 63 stakes.

The Beehive State currently has 15 operating Latter-day Saint temples. Two more, the historic Salt Lake Temple and the St. George Utah Temple, are undergoing renovation. Eight others, including the one in Syracuse, are either under construction or planned.

The Syracuse Utah Temple will be constructed on a 12-acre field located at the intersection of 2500 West and 1025 South in Syracuse, Utah. Plans call for a three-story building of approximately 89,000 square feet. An official exterior rendering of the Syracuse Utah Temple was released on 16 February 2021.

A groundbreaking date has not been set.
