The Gilbert Arizona Temple was announced on 28 April 2008 by President Thomas S. Monson. It is one of the first two announced by President Monson since he was ordained President of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
Since the announcement, reports have circulated that the temple site is purportedly to be at or near the intersection of Greenfield and Pecos Road, near the Loop 202 (San Tan) Freeway in Gilbert (map). No other plans, including the site (whether it be at that location, or some other location), have been announced yet.
No date has been set for groundbreaking nor have other details been made available yet.
