Ideal Org, 5395 Roswell Rd. - Some history
« on: June 05, 2009, 22:38 »
According to this archived page, the Roswell Road opening was supposed to have happened on April 30, 2007.  The page was archived on December 5, 2006.

The target date of our Grand Opening has been set for April 30, 2007. And while that seems quite a distance in the future, what has to be done between now and then is gargantuan.

The primary target is to finish raising the amount needed for the renovations. After that, a 30-35 week project to fully renovate our building gets under way. In order to allow for enough time to complete the renovations by April 30, we must complete the fundraising by the end of September.

I believe this was posted on September 24, 2006, because it says:

I also notice they were holding events at 5395 Roswell Rd. long before the one noticed in March 2009.

So much for the building being only to serve scientologists!  This quote from the page archived on August 9, 2006 contradicts that statement by Mr. Galloway.

Once complete, the building will house panels and audio-visual presentations in the Public Divisions so that anyone can come in and find out about Dianetics and Scientology. A new person can take his time touring through the panels and presentations to find the point that interests him and then get the service that will make the difference in his life.

TONIGHT! THE BIG ONE IS HERE - LRH'S BIRTHDAY! WE BUY OUR BUILDING TONIGHT! BE THERE!!!

So they lied to their members and told them that the building was purchased 4 months after Fulton County shows that it was purchased.  Nice.  Real nice behavior for a "church."

(Previous sales look kinda odd to me, too.  It jumped in value $2.1 million in 5 months!)

You are an internet search machine!!!!


I think the neighbors noticed them before, but the most recent one was the easiest to site.  One neighbor (I think) said they had stuff in there every few months.  However, that one has not been back and actually goes to the same church as Mr. Galloway.

Anyone else have a recollection of it?

Would be nice to somehow get this kind of information to the city of Sandy springs council peeps. This shows a pattern and or precedent.

Did they have the legal right to hold these events? Under the current zoning laws? I am no attorney, yet this shows a pattern of disregard IMHO.

Even better if we can get an idea of how many people attended each event; if in excess of the available parking slots, this may hold a LOT of weight.

VERY WELL DONE.

Perhaps it is time to start drafting new letters, and then we can hold them until we polish them / are ready to bombard.
