CLEARWATER - The Church of Scientology's mammoth new spiritual shrine has stood vacant and unfinished for years, its dusty Mediterranean-style shell surrounded by patches of scrubby grass and "no trespassing" signs.

Now church officials say they are ready to resume work on the building as it has racked up more than $55,000 in fines for not meeting the city's deadline to finish the exterior.

Clearwater's city building department issued a new construction permit that will allow the church to finish the exterior of the 384,000-square-foot structure, more than two years after the original permit expired. The church broke ground on the seven-story building in March 2000.
