Scientology plans new center - 2010-01-15
This year, Columbus is set to join a worldwide push in the Church of Scientology to improve its buildings and increase its reach.
The Church of Scientology of Central Ohio has existed in Columbus for 30 years in various Downtown locations. Leaders plan to move the church from its current spot at 30 N. High St. to the former Time Warner building at 1266 Dublin Rd. on the Northwest Side.
The new church will classify as an "Ideal Church of Scientology."
That means the premises' design is ideal for the seven-days-a-week services Scientology provides, Wendy Beccaccini, a spokeswoman for the international church, said via e-mail.
