News from Utah

Ground will soon be broken for the new temple at the top of Utah.

The groundbreaking ceremony for the Brigham City Temple is scheduled for July 31 at 9 a.m., according to Scott Trotter, spokesman for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

The public is invited to attend. The event will also be broadcast to stake centers in the temple district.

Building and landscape designs for the temple were created to reflect both the history of the town and other historic temples in that state, according to Brigham City's economic-development director.

"It's a beautiful building," Paul Larsen said of the temple plans. "The (Brigham City) tabernacle has been the architectural gem of the city. This temple will be right up there with it."

The city's planning commission approved the blueprints on June 15. The temple, Utah's 14th, will be built across from the historic tabernacle on Main Street.
