Mormon Church will lower height of Phoenix temple

The height of the proposed Mormon temple in Phoenix will not exceed residential zoning heights, church officials said Tuesday.

Len Greer, a spokesperson for the church in the Greater Phoenix Area, said the church will lower and redesign the height of the temple. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints officials had proposed building a temple, at 51st Avenue and Pinnacle Peak Road, that would be 40 feet high, 10 feet higher than the land's current zoning, which is 30 feet. The temple would still have a 78-foot-high steeple and spire.
