White Plains New York Controversy Makes Local News

NEW YORK, NEW YORK -- WNBC-TV 4's local news coverage Monday, July 31st included a news story on the controversy over the LDS Church's proposed White Plains temple. The building, to be constructed on a 24 acre plot in Harrison, New York, next to White Plains, is opposed by a group of neighbors, organized as the group "Homes for Harrison," who feel the building is too large for the neighborhood.

During the news story, LDS officials got the opportunity to make their case for the building, which they said would be more than 400 feet away from its nearest neighbor, and generally protected from view by the wooded area. The Church also argues that most traffic for the building will be coming from the highway, I-287, which runs next to the building, instead of from local residential roads.

But representatives from "Homes for Harrison" argued that the building was simply too big for the neighborhood, observing that the building would be "bigger that the Sphinx."
