TEMPLE, TX — The city of Temple has released floor plans for the anticipated 7 Seas Aquarium in the Temple Mall.

The aquarium was scheduled to open its doors on Feb. 24, but was postponed to last minute adjustments.

7 Seas posted on Facebook that due to some last minute minor adjustments and revisions required by the City's planning department, the opening has been temporarily delayed.

Temple Public Relations Manager Laurie Simmons says the the city has been working with aquarium officials since November, and recently have been in contact with city managers to get things up and running.

"That's part of the building permit process, our fire life and safety teams go through the site plans to make sure it can handle the amount of people slated for the building safety, making sure there are no hazards." says Simmons.
