♦️ ♦️ Invalid Pokestop about to become a gym. Help! ♦️ ♦️
This historic location has gotten some new stops lately, and qualifies for a new gym next time the system updates. (This week.) Unfortunately, the oldest and highest rated pokestop here is for a feature that was demolished years ago. Locals have tried to get this removed, but google maps still shows it being there as it hasn't updated in a few years either, and so nothing has been done.
But now that it's going to be a gym, the situation is more urgent. Trainers will raise up their gym level for no reason, as its removal will eventually go through, and lose their progress. Removing this stop now won't negatively impact players, as it will open space in an S17 cell for a currently hidden stop. (Ironically titled "The Hidden Gardens") Can a mod please help? The automated system won't cut it this time.
Here's the info to support my claim. Thanks for your time!

Additional information: This fountain was demolished during renovations back in 2019. Proof of new water feature: https://churchofjesuschristtemples.org/bountiful-utah-temple/news/ Note that background location is identical to the original fountain, though the new feature is very different.
New water feature is already a pokestop: Black Granite Fountain, 40.882893780798994, -111.84618186918527 Ingress Map Proof:
Google maps image of the current pokestop location (which was wildly incorrect to begin with, though all efforts to move it to the right location were rejected). Clearly shows there is no fountain here: https://firstname.lastname@example.org,-111.8468441,3a,75y,190.36h,89.43t/data=!3m8!1e1!3m6!1sAF1QipOqolKbjq6sQP_7HtD_Gvk7kDLmBK9zoxtpeK0W!2e10!3e11!6shttps:%2F%2Flh5.googleusercontent.com%2Fp%2FAF1QipOqolKbjq6sQP_7HtD_Gvk7kDLmBK9zoxtpeK0W%3Dw203-h100-k-no-pi0-ya359.92844-ro-0-fo100!7i8704!8i4352
