Design includes more than 32 acres of open space, parks and walking trails
Plans have been released for a new walkable, sustainable, high-quality residential community to be built around the site of the Tooele Valley Utah Temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
The temple will be located northwest of the intersection of Erda Way and Highway 36 in Erda, Utah. The community surrounding the temple is being proposed by Suburban Land Reserve, Inc. (SLR), a tax-paying real estate investment affiliate of the Church. SLR has released new renderings and a site plan showing what the community will look like. (Renderings showing the planned design of the temple were released previously.)
“This development will improve and enhance the vacant land around the temple site for generations to come,” said Ashley Powell, managing director of Investment Properties. “We are committed to developing a vibrant neighborhood where people of different ages and income levels will enjoy living within walking distance of the temple. The temple’s timeless architecture and manicured grounds will be a beautiful, enduring central feature of the community for all who will live there, regardless of religious affiliation.” (more info in the Church Newsroom)
