On April 13, Nagengast emailed Taylor stating she was considering relocating her business because of disappointment in the city's lack of support for the Church of Scientology's offer to overhaul downtown infrastructure, recruit high end retail to empty storefronts and build an entertainment complex with actor Tom Cruise.

Scientology leader David Miscavige offered to bankroll the redevelopment on the condition the city move aside and allow the church to buy a 1.4 acre vacant lot on Pierce Street. After the city bought the lot April 20, Miscavige withdrew his offer to redevelop downtown.
