Two New Stakes in Utah

Two new stakes were recently created in Utah, the Saratoga Springs Utah Crossroads Stake and the Santa Clara Utah Heights Stake.  The Saratoga Springs Utah Crossroads Stake was organized from the Saratoga Springs Utah and Saratoga Springs Utah South Stakes whereas the Santa Clara Utah Heights Stake was organized from the Santa Clara Utah Stake.  I will provide congregational information for the two new stakes once it becomes available.  There are now 558 stakes in Utah.

So far this year there have been 57 new stakes organized; the largest number of new stakes created in a single year since 1998 when 84 new stakes were organized.

What do you think the chances for temples in Timp and St. George Districts with these new stakes?

my guess is that the next temples in Utah will be in Cedar City, and Tooele.... Cedar City has about a dozen stakes, a 4 year university, and an hour drive from st george. Tooele because there's about 10 stakes and 45 minutes away from the salt lake temple.
