Church of Scientology seeks home in Bucks
By FREDA R. SAVANA
A. Rhodes Wilson is no stranger to Plumstead Township, nor is his property at 5571 Easton Road.
For nearly five years, Wilson and his wife, Jana, have been at war with the township over how they can use the single-family dwelling they have never lived in. The couple lives in Buckingham.
In the most recent turn of events, the Wilsons are looking for approval to use the building, once home to Rhodes Wilson’s accounting business, as the Church of Scientology Mission of Bucks County.
Wilson was not available for comment Tuesday but his attorney, Robert Gundlach, said he expected the conditional use request to be “straight forward.”
“He’s not proposing any changes to the existing structure,” said Gundlach.
On the application, Wilson is listed as a principle in the church.
