Forsyth County to Host Public Meetings as Part Of Comprehensive Plan Update
Public meetings scheduled for Feb. 23, March 1 and 3
Forsyth County will host three interactive public input meetings (two in-person, one virtual) in late February and early March as part of Foster Forsyth 2022, a 12-month planning effort that will culminate in a partial update to the County’s Comprehensive Plan.
The meetings will be the second round of a series of meetings that include community feedback via in-person and online activities. The meetings will be on the following dates (the same material will be covered at all three meetings):
- Feb. 23 (6-8 p.m.) - Fowler Park Recreation Center Community Room (4110 Carolene Way)
- March 1 (6-8 p.m.) - Central Park Recreation Center Banquet Room (2300 Keith Bridge Rd.)
- March 2 (6-7:15 p.m.) - Virtual Meeting hosted on Zoom
Meeting ID: 886 9071 3350
Join via phone audio: 1-929-205-6099
The second meeting series will concentrate on community input collected to date with focus placed upon potential changes to the County’s future land use policy. There will also be opportunity to offer feedback on priority needs to facilitate well-managed growth over the next five years.
“Community input is a vital part of the process in order to reflect preferred approaches,” said Planning & Community Development Deputy Director Vanessa Bernstein-Goldman. “The County strongly encourages participation.”
