Forsyth County to Host Public Meetings as Part of Comprehensive Plan Update

Public meetings scheduled for May 16, 18 and 23

Forsyth County will host three public meetings (two in-person, one virtual) in coordination with an online review period in May 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 first two meetings will be in an open house format for community members to review key elements of the draft plan update and provide feedback prior to its completion. The third meeting, a virtual question & answer session, will offer an opportunity for those who review materials online to speak to the planning team as a flexible alternative to attending one of the in-person meetings.

Information Session Options

All sessions will have access to the same information and an opportunity to provide comments.

-           May 16 (6-8 p.m.) - Central Park Recreation Center Banquet Room (2300 Keith Bridge Rd.)

-           May 18 (6-8 p.m.) - Fowler Park Recreation Center Community Room (4110 Carolene Way)

-           May 23 (6-7 p.m.) - Virtual Question & Answer Session hosted on Zoom

                                    Meeting ID: 851 5657 9893; Join via phone audio: 1-301-715-8592

Community members will also have an opportunity to review the same draft plan materials online on the project website from May 17 at 8 a.m. through May 30 at 8 a.m. Those attending the Virtual Q&A Session should review summary plan materials on the website prior to the meeting.

“This third public meeting series, in conjunction with the online input period, will be the final opportunity to comment on the draft plan prior to public hearings to be scheduled in June and July,” said Planning & Community Development Deputy Director Vanessa Bernstein-Goldman. “We strongly encourage participation and community feedback since the Comprehensive Plan is utilized to help guide future growth in Forsyth County.”

Georgia requires communities to update their comprehensive plans every five years, including a reevaluation of needs and opportunities, preferred options for future land use as well as action steps to achieve community goals.
