Zoning board to hear 'megachurch' and development on former rifle range in Hamilton tonight

Tonight the Hamilton zoning board will tackle two controversial development proposals in the township.

A planned 70,000 square foot "megachurch" and community center on Kuser Road and a planned development in the former Italian American Sportsmens Club will go before the body tonight.

The planned church would include seats for 1,000 parishioners and have an additional community center, built later. Plans call for variances such as parking setbacks and require general approval from the body.

The hearing on the Italian American Sportsmen's Club development is for the approval of the site plan, separate from the needed environmental cleanup. Sharbell Building Corporation has proposed building a 55-lot development on the more than 10 acre site.

The area, which served as a shooting range for decades, is contaminated and requires cleanup before it can be developed.

Township engineer Rich Williams said the remediation of the site needs to be approved by the state Department of Environmental Protection before any construction begins and is separate from the township's zoning process.
