Scientology (Finally) Coming to Sandy Springs

The Church of Scientology's three year battle with the City of Sandy Springs over its desire to open a church at the corner of Glenridge and Roswell Road has ended in victory. It was way back in 2009 that Sandy Springs denied the church's plan to open at the busy intersection, and the issue was insufficient "parking." Three years, many acrimonious hearings and thousands of dollars in legal fees later, the Scientologists won approval for a plan that involves using some of the nearby U.S. Post Office's parking spots.
