About 700 people gathered Saturday in an empty field in southeast Fort Collins to break ground on what will be the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints’ second temple in Colorado. The Temple will be Located on the southeast corner of South Timberline and Trilby roads.

It won approval from Fort Collins planning and zoning officials in February. Fort Collins City Councilman Wade Troxell said the temple will be a welcome addition to the Fort Collins community.

“I think we’re a bigger family by joining them in this kind of ceremony,” he said. “It brings us together as a community.”

The temple will serve approximately 44,000 Mormons in Northern Colorado and Wyoming. Construction is expected to be finished late 2015. The 30,389-square-foot temple will have a steeple topped by the angel Moroni, which brings the height of the building to 112 feet.
