This Year Reno Temple Lights No Problem

RENO, NEVADA -- Unlike last year, no one showed up to oppose a special use permit covering the lighting of the Reno Nevada Temple. The Reno City Council met Tuesday to discuss the LDS Church's application for a special use permit to light the outside of the building, leading the council to unanimously approve the lighting plan.

Since the Temple was completed last year, the Church has sought to light the building's outside at night, as the Church does with most of its Temples. Last year, as the building was being constructed, neighbors opposed the lighting plan, claiming that the lights were excessive. The council then granted the Church a special use permit last year, but required the Church's representatives to meet with a neighborhood advisory committee to discuss their concerns.
