Forsyth County Board of Commissioners to Consider Adoption of Comprehensive Plan

On July 6, the Forsyth County Board of Commissioners will consider the adoption of the Forsyth County Comprehensive Plan 2017-2037, the result of a multi-month comprehensive plan update process that began in early 2016, branded as Foster Forsyth. The public hearing will take place as part of the Board of Commissioners’ regular meeting starting at 5 p.m.

At the request of the Board of Commissioners on April 13, 2017, the Forsyth County Comprehensive Plan 2017-2037 was submitted for state and regional review. Both the state of Georgia and the Georgia Mountains Regional Commission determined that the plan meets the standards for comprehensive planning in Georgia.

Prior to adopting the plan, the Board of Commissioners will hear a presentation from the planning team highlighting the planning process and key plan content. Members of the public will have an opportunity to voice their perspective on the draft plan during the public hearing prior to the Board of Commissioners taking action to advance the plan. The plan is available online at

The public hearing will take place as part of a regular meeting of the Board of Commissioners on Thursday, July 6, starting at 5 p.m. It will be held in Suite 220 of the Forsyth County Administration Building located at 110 E. Main Street in Cumming.

About Foster Forsyth
Foster Forsyth is a full update initiative to the county’s Comprehensive Plan, focused on community elements such as housing, transportation, zoning and other land use matters, as well as economic development. The Comprehensive Plan is the umbrella policy document for the county’s future growth and development, which plays an important role in rezoning and development decisions. The plan also establishes community goals and priorities for the county’s future.

The update process provided an opportunity for the community as a whole to pause and have a meaningful dialogue about its vision for land use, housing, quality of life and employment opportunities, along with the policies and programs that will support plan implementation.

The Comprehensive Plan update process is being conducted by Jacobs in collaboration with Kimley-Horn. For more information, please visit or contact Meghan McMullen, a member of the Jacobs consultant team, at (404) 978-7651 or
