Another LDS church slated for Kuna
It looks like another LDS church is planned for Kuna, at the northeast corner of Ten Mile and Columbia roads. A proposal to annex a 5.77-acre property right on the corner was presented to the Kuna Planning and Zoning Commission last night. Commission members recommended approving the annexation with the expectation of the parcel becoming a new Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints building. The Kuna Stake just opened a new church building the first weekend in August on Linder Road, just south of Columbia Road. That building is large enough to be a new stake center but currently is being used to house Wards 7 and 11 in the Kuna Stake. At the time, Stake President Shane Beus hinted that some big changes are coming but he wouldn't let on. Is this a sign of a North Kuna Stake and a South Kuna Stake? President Beus told me that the Kuna Stake is bursting at the seams with about 5,800 members, that's up from about 5,300 last year.
