Helsinki Finland Temple Site Reserved

ESPOO, FINLAND -- A news report in the Helsinki Sanomat last week said that the city of Espoo had reserved a lot for the LDS Church's planned Helsinki Temple. The city council's vote last Tuesday put the Temple about 7 miles northwest of downtown Helsinki. According to the report, the lot is reserved until the end of next year, contingent upon the Church getting city zoning and other plans in place.

The lot set aside for the Church is about 7.5 acres (3 hectares), but a small portion of the area is currently private property. According to current architectural plans, the Church will build a 23,000-square-foot building on the property

The Helsinki Temple was announced in April General Conference, 2000. Finland currently has two stakes and about 4,500 members. The proposed Temple will also be the closest geographically for Church members in northeastern Russia, Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania.
