Mormons break ground on 'green' meetinghouse in New Jersey

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints broke ground Saturday on an enviromentally friendly state of the art meetinghouse in Englewood, planned to serve members of the Mormon faith from across Bergen County.

The 15,270-square-foot facility is expected to open in early 2014, according to a church news release.

The new meetinghouse, the release said, will also become Englewood's first building to carry LEED certification, which recognizes the structure's "green" construction.
