Projected to be a single-story temple of approximately 25,000 square feet, the Farmington New Mexico Temple will be built on a 6.62-acre site at the intersection of College Boulevard and Windsor Drive. A meetinghouse also is planned to be built on the site.

The temple will be the second in New Mexico, which counts nearly 70,000 Church members, 138 congregations, 14 stakes and a temple in Albuquerque that was dedicated in 2000.
