Forsyth County is updating its comprehensive plan and wants YOU to join the conversation and help shape our future! Join public input sessions beginning this April 2016 to start providing input to Forsyth County’s Comprehensive Plan Update process, Foster Forsyth.

Comp Plan 101: Our County’s Comprehensive Plan is the umbrella policy document for Forsyth County’s future growth and development. It plays an important role in rezoning and development decisions and also establishes community goals and priorities for the county’s future.

Foster Forsyth: The plan update process, Foster Forsyth, provides an opportunity for the community as a whole to pause and have a meaningful dialogue about its vision for the county as it relates to housing, quality of life, employment opportunities and the policies and programs that will support plan implementation. Forsyth County is updating its Comprehensive Plan ahead of schedule to address the topics that are on residents’ minds now – including – growth, housing, density, employment.

Your Input Matters! Stakeholder committees, residents, businesses, community groups, and County staff and leadership will all be included in fostering the Forsyth of tomorrow. To get involved, please plan to come to our public workshops and design charrettes, which will take place throughout the spring and summer – see below.
