The owner of Rainbow Hall, a historic property located at 10729 Park Heights Ave., has filed two separate plans for churches. A hearing has been set for February 2 on a development plan for a 1,000 seat sanctuary, with a proposed use as a multi-faith center. An additional hearing on a second plan for a 156-seat church is scheduled for February 29. A special exception is required for a church in the RC2 zone.

A decision by the Baltimore County Board of Appeals is pending in the special hearing on current apartment uses at Rainbow Hall (10729 Park Heights Avenue). A public deliberation is scheduled for January 19th, and a written opinion will follow in several weeks’ time.
