This morning President Monson announced new temples for Colorado, Idaho, and Manitoba.
The Fort Colllins Colorado Temple will service members living in northern Colorado and southeastern Wyoming. A total of seven or eight stakes will likely be included in the potential temple district. Church growth in the area has been slow as most new wards and branches in Colorado have been organized in the Denver metropolitan area over the past decade. Colorado was formerly the state with the most members without a temple.
The Meridian Idaho Temple will most likely service members living in the western Boise metropolitan area. Church growth has been rapid in the area primarily due to strong population growth over the past two decades. Approximately 10 to 15 new stakes will likely be included in the new temple district. The new temple will become Idaho's fifth LDS temple.
The Winnipeg Manitoba Temple was purposed by President Hinckley in 1998 and will likely include one stake and one district, which would make the temple district the smallest in the Church. Church growth has been very slow in Manitoba, with only one stake in the province. There are now nine temples in Canada announced, under construction, or operating.
