Brigham City Temple draws on city's history

Kerry Nielsen, an architect for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, said the LDS Church has been very focused on making the proposed temple "the Brigham City, Utah Temple," using many of the city's historical designs for both the building and the landscaping.

"It has features in the classical historical design found in the Logan, Manti and Salt Lake Temple," Nielsen said.

The city planning commission gave its approval for the proposed design and found it to be consistent and in compliance with the city's commercial and general plan for the area.

The proposed 110-foot-by-72-foot building will stand across from the existing tabernacle, with the top of the Angel Moroni 14 feet higher than the highest point of the tabernacle. Overall, the temple will be an estimated 9,000 square feet.

The parking area will consist of roughly 120 stalls on a main level and 130 stalls underground. Parking on the main level will be accessed from 200 and 300 South, and the underground parking will be accessed from the west.
