During last week’s City Council meeting, residents raised traffic concerns on the Church of Scientology location at Glenridge Drive and Roswell Road. As a result, on zoning modification conditions for the property.
Patch asked readers for their take.
: Should zoning modification conditions for the Church of Scientology be approved to accommodate its rebuilding plans?
As of midnight, only 37 respondents indicated traffic concerns.
Many more – 105 – indicated they were uncomfortable with City Council approving zoning modification conditions for various reasons.
There were 75 respondents that voted yes to the zoning modification, and were surprised that it had turned into such a big issue.
, Anthony Poselenzny wrote: "They should be approved. There is a lot of religious bias shown in not doing so. As citizens we will end up paying more in taxes when we get sued and lose. Our council needs to be adult, fair minded, and serious, and not political, and stand up and make the right decision."
Citing traffic, Patched In said: "I also live in Round Hill condos, and Jack Shaw is right on the money about the huge problem with ingress from and egress onto Roswell Rd. I have no opinion about scientology one way or the other, my concern is the negative impact their plans would have on an area that already has inadequate infrastructure..."
City Council plans to vote on this issue at the next meeting on July 17. Continue to tell us what you think and .
