Monticello Temple to be Expanded

MONTICELLO, UTAH -- The LDS Church plans to remodel and expand the Monticello, Utah Temple starting next March, just three years after it was dedicated. The first of the new "smaller" Temples dedicated, the Monticello temple has proved too small for the demands of its temple district.

Originally constructed with just 6,800 square feet of floor space, the Temple remains one of the smallest of these "smaller" temples, which are now built with about 10,000 to 12,500 square feet of floor space. The renovation will increase the floor space in the temple to 11,000 square feet, expanding the building's dressing rooms, laundry and offices and adding new ordinance rooms and a new celestial room.

Construction on the Temple is planned for March 1st, with the expansion and remodeling complete by October of next year. The temple serves some 15,000 members located in Southeastern Utah and Southwestern Colorado.
