“Plans for Three Temples Announced,” Ensign, Nov. 1992, 102
Properties have been designated for the construction of new temples in Hong Kong; Hartford, Connecticut; and Utah County, Utah. The temple in Hartford will “accommodate Church members from the New York, Boston, and New England areas,” explained President Gordon B. Hinckley, First Counselor in the First Presidency, when announcing the new temples during the 162nd Semiannual General Conference.
The Utah County temple will “relieve the pressure on the Provo Temple, which is operating far beyond its designed capacity,” President Hinckley continued.
“We anticipate that there will be others, the locations of which will be announced later,” he concluded.
