Fairview’s Proposed Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints

Here’s the rendering of the proposed Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints church.  If approved, it will be situated on an 8.16-acre site located at 671 East Stacy Road in Fairview, Tx.  

Construction is supposed to start sometime this year and is expected to take a year to complete. Here’s the LDS official press release …

The Church hopes you will share in its excitement about this sacred Christian building which will be built to the highest standards of construction with beautiful landscaping.

The temple will incorporate local architecture and themes in its design, so it is complimentary with the surrounding neighborhood. It is our hope it will be a community asset as an oasis of peace.

Plans call for a two-story temple of approximately 43,200 square feet and an accompanying small center to purchase religious items and house grounds maintenance equipment.

Unlike a Cathedral, the temple does not contain a large room for meetings. Instead, it is built with a series of smaller rooms where the highest ordinances of the faith take place by special appointment. Because of this, large numbers of people will not come to the neighborhood at the same time.

We recognize that construction can cause some temporary challenges and we thank you in advance for your patience. Please be assured that this project is consistent with city regulations. In fact, an official notice will be coming from the city informing you of the temple’s construction.

Once the temple is completed, you will be among the first to be invited on a special tour before the public as a sign of goodwill for your support during the building process. The Church desires to be a good neighbor and welcomes any questions or concerns you might have about this project. Please feel free to contact me at any time before or during construction.

 

We’d like to warmly invite you to attend an informational Open House on Thursday March 21st at 7:00 at our church building on Stacy Rd where you will be able to see renderings of the inside and outside of the planned temple.  There, we’d be happy to answer any questions you may have.
