On Thursday, March 12, the Council for Quality Growth hosted the Forsyth Advisory Committee Meeting, sponsored by Atlanta Gas Light, at the Forsyth Conference Center at Lanier Technical College with Forsyth County Commission Chairman Pete Amos. Chairman Amos provided those in attendance with a formal address of current Forsyth County news.
Among the most recent news was the ribbon cutting ceremony, held Thursday, for Forsyth’s new courthouse.
Chairman Amos also discussed the growth of Forsyth County, noting the budget has expanded over the past five years from $80 million to $103 million. The housing market is still steady, not like the growth many counties experienced in 2000, but the housing growth is sustainable. Forsyth passed the Transportation Bond, a $200 million general bond used to finance a variety of transportation projects throughout the county, supported by the Council for Quality Growth. The county expansion led to a need to help support key infrastructure improvements.
The Council thanks Chairman Amos for addressing our members and Atlanta Gas Light for sponsoring the lunch meeting.
