Contrary to your description of the Church of Scientology Flag building as an eyesore, it has looked beautiful since, with the concurrence of Clearwater officials, the church installed over $300,000 in landscaping in 2007.

Also, during the past five years, the Church of Scientology in Clearwater has paid $4.2 million in property taxes while at the same time completing massive construction, renovation and restoration of three landmark buildings, totaling almost a million square feet — the Oak Cove, the Fort Harrison and the Flag building. The church has further paid the city and county over $3 million in impact fees for improved city infrastructure, while also paying for all sidewalks and hardscaping that would otherwise have cost the city hundreds of thousands of dollars.
