LDS Church Sets Site for Redlands Temple

REDLANDS, CALIFORNIA -- The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints will build its announced Redlands Temple on the Northwest corner of 5th and Wabash Avenues, next to the Redlands Stake Center. The proximity will allow the Temple, one of the Church's new "smaller" temples, to share the parking lot with the Stake Center.

Redlands officials were at first surprised when the Church announced it would build a Temple in the city because no plans had been filed. Usually, an announcement of a construction project comes only after plans have been filed. But for LDS Church members, the construction of a Temple is so momentous that announcements often preceed the filing process.

But that difference led Redlands officials to speculate that the Church would build the Temple in the "donut hole," a 1,000 acre area of unincorporated county land that is completely surrounded by the city of Redlands. But in the end the Church chose the 5th and Wabash site, which is inside city boundaries.

Local Church officials and members are all anticipating the construction of the Temple. "Everybody's extremely excited about this," says Redlands Stake President Douglas Glauser. "[It will be] wonderful to have the temple closer and more accessible." The new temple will serve a district of about 70,000 church members in San Bernardino and Riverside counties. Glauser said that church officials are contacting neighbors to give them information about the building and answer any questions they may have.
