New Temple Announced For Payson, Utah

The First Presidency announced on January 25th that a new temple will be built in Payson, Utah to relieve crowding at the Provo Utah Temple. The new temple will served around 78,000 members in 22 stakes in the Spanish Fork/Payson area. With the new temple announcement, this raises the number of temples announced, under construction, or operating in Utah to 15 and worldwide to 152.

AWESOME! I'm from Spanish Fork, and the Provo temple is extremely busy right now. This will be a great blessing for those that are already attending.

I would like to know if you will update you future temples list soon. Some of the temples fron your predictions have been announced. I would also like to see if you have other ideas not on your list that a temple could bee. (this temple i think counts as your Spanish Fork temple since those stekes are in that district.
I am still waiting for a Layton Temple. But with wouldthe Brigham City temple delay that a bit since it covers part of the Current Odgen temple district? I would like an update on your code system for predictions.

Chris-

I will make some updates in the coming week. I have some potential temples to add based on some new trends occurring over the past year. I do not think that a temple in Brigham City will decrease the likelihood of a temple in Layton.
