BOUNTIFUL -- The Bountiful city council is taking steps to try to limit patrons of the Bountiful LDS temple from parking on Bountiful Boulevard.

The Standard-Examiner reports the city council recently approved placing four "No Temple Parking" signs in front of the temple on the east side of Bountiful Boulevard.

Some residents had petitioned to get the signs in front of their houses because on typical days, parked cars line the street in front of their homes.

According to the Examiner, Councilman Tom Tolman said the temple has enough parking to serve patrons and they don't need to park on the street.

The paper quotes neighbors as saying the number of patrons at the Bountiful temple has nearly doubled since the Ogden temple closed for renovations.

The parking recommendations are not legally enforceable but the city council hopes they will be effective anyway.
