Major Developments Reported on Temples Undergoing Renovation

Hello again, everyone! Earlier today, some game-changing information was reported on the temples undergoing renovation. This post will share the highlights of these changes. Let's get right into all of that. First, given the relatively extensive progress seen on the Hinckley-era temples currently undergoing renovation (Oklahoma City Oklahoma, Memphis Tennessee, Raleigh North Carolina, and Baton Rouge Louisiana) when compared with the older and larger temples currently undergoing renovation (Frankfurt Germany and Oakland California), the former four have been moved ahead of the latter two.

Therefore, the general estimates for these temples has been altered, and there have been a few new developments reported. The estimates for OKC and Memphis have been changed to mid-2019. For the former, it has been reported that stone cladding and art glass installation are nearing completion. In relation to the latter, it has been noted that stone cladding is nearing completion.

In relation to the Raleigh and Baton Rouge Temples, the general estimate has been changed to mid-to-late 2019. Aside from that estimate change, nothing new has been reported for either temple, as stone cladding for the exterior walls continues on the former, and a waterproofing membrane has been attached to the exterior of the latter in preparation for its' stone cladding process.

For the Frankfurt Germany and Oakland California Temples, more information will apparently be needed before a more general estimate is offered. For now, it has been noted that both temples are anticipated to be rededicated at some point next year. And an update on the Frankfurt Temple shows that curbing is being poured now for the expanded parking lot, while the exterior walls of the on-site villa are being renovated.

Because these unexpected developments were reported earlier today, I have not yet had a chance to analyze how the information will alter the more specific estimates I have previously offered for the future rededication of these temples. Look for that at some point this week as I have time to put that together. I do continue to monitor any and all Church news and temple developments and will do my level best to keep passing word of such news on to you all as I receive it.

That does it for this post. Any and all comments are, as always, welcome and appreciated, on any post at any time. Thank you for the privilege of your time.
