GILBERT, Ariz. — A newly constructed, 195-foot Mormon temple southeast of Phoenix has opened its doors.
Hundreds are expected to spruce up Tucson parks this weekend.
The Mormon temple could be located on 71/2 acres the church owns near where Ina Road bends into Skyline Drive. But the church says a final decision has not been made. It also has talked about two other temple sites.
The likely site of Tucson's first Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints temple is in the Catalina Foothills, near where East Ina Road curves into Skyline Drive.
