Open House Set for Proposed South Forsyth Design Standards and Branding January 7, 2020 Photo, Planning and Community Development Recommendations to be presented Jan. 22 for public feedback Forsyth County will host an open house to gather feedback from residents, business owners and property owners on south Forsyth’s commercial design standards and branding proposal. The open house will be held from 5:30 to 8 p.m. on Wednesday, Jan. 22, at the Sharon Forks Public Library (2820 Old Atlanta Rd.). During the drop-in open house meeting, attendees will have the opportunity to view design proposals, ask questions and comment on the concepts presented by staff and the project’s consultant. The preliminary standards and marketing brand, drafted following a Sept. 2019 design workshop, are being created to help support a stronger identity for south Forsyth. The branding portion of the south Forsyth design initiative will include a logo and tagline as well as other marketing recommendations to help identify the area. These recommendations will help support a brand style as part of a larger placemaking initiative currently underway. The design standards will specifically focus on non-residential uses along commercial corridors, which will include both architectural and landscape-based elements. The approximate boundaries for this portion of Forsyth County are State Hwy. 400 to the west, McGinnis Ferry Rd. to the south and north of State Hwy. 20 on the northern boundary.
