Public invited to attend open house sessions

 

Forsyth County is nearing the conclusion of an important process to update its comprehensive transportation plan, a guiding document that outlines the long-range vision for transportation in the county. The updated plan takes a close look at the transportation needs of people who live, work and play throughout the county and will result in projects to address vehicular, freight, bicycle and pedestrian needs.

 

The Transportation Plan Update kicked off with a series of public open house sessions in April followed by an online community survey. Now, the project team is ready to solicit feedback on some draft recommendations and potential projects. The public is invited to participate in this second and final series of public open house sessions at the following locations throughout the county:

 

Tuesday, November 14: 6 - 8 p.m.

Forsyth Conference Center, Lanier Technical College

3410 Ronald Reagan Boulevard

 

Thursday, November 16: 6 - 8 p.m.

Central Park Recreation Center, Banquet Room

2300 Keith Bridge Road

 

Tuesday, November 28: 6 - 8 p.m.

Lambert High School, Cafeteria

805 Nichols Road

 

Thursday, November 30: 6 - 8 p.m.

West Forsyth High School, Cafeteria

4155 Drew Road

 

Thursday, December 7: 6 - 8 p.m.

Hampton Park Library, Meeting Room

5345 Settingdown Road

 

There will be no formal presentation and the same information will be displayed at each open house. The public is invited to attend the session most convenient to them and to drop in at any time during the open house hours. Those who cannot attend the open house sessions are encouraged to view the display materials and provide input via the project website, www.forsythtransportationplan.com.

 

The Forsyth Transportation Plan Update is funded in part by the Atlanta Regional Commission, the agency tasked with planning for the future of transportation for the entire metro Atlanta region. Counties are required to update transportation plans every five years. A consultant team led by Jacobs Engineering was selected to lead this effort in close coordination with the Forsyth County Department of Engineering. Public input, combined with the technical expertise of Forsyth County staff and the consultant team, will result in a list of transportation projects as well as policy recommendations for consideration and adoption by the Forsyth County Board of Commissioners, slated for December 2017.
