CLEARWATER — With the Internal Revenue Service proclaiming them an official tax-free religion, the Church of Scientology had hoped to quickly launch a $42 million expansion downtown. But the city of Clearwater has put the church on notice that it might not be able to grow too fast. The six-story office tower and auditorium Scientologists plan to build across the street from their Fort Harrison Hotel may be so big that it qualifies as a "Development of Regional Impact" under the ...
