Pocono Dome plans back before officials in Monroe County

The buyer is seeking zoning variances

HAMILTON TWP., Pa. - A plan, unpopular with some, to convert a Monroe County sports facility into a community space for church functions will be back before township officials tonight.

The Hamilton Township Planning Commission will review proposed plans for the now-closed Pocono Dome during it's meeting at 7:30 p.m. Monday at the Monroe County Safety Center, 100 Gypsum Road. The board will be discussing the project to decide whether to recommend that the zoning hearing board approve requested variances.

The World Mission Society Church of God in Jenkintown wants to purchase the property with plans to keep it as is and use it for church functions and community activities.

The church had withdrawn an application because of an error. Church officials said they had planned to resubmit it land-use application.
