Forsyth County has formally begun the process of updating its Comprehensive Plan which was adopted in July 2017, a document that addresses critical issues and opportunities within the County that incorporates a shared vision for the community’s future. 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.
The process of updating the plan, known as Foster Forsyth 2022, is a 12-month planning effort that will culminate in a partial update to the County’s Comprehensive Plan. The process began with a public hearing held during the Oct. 21 Board of Commissioners meeting, which served to communicate the commencement of the process and outline the community engagement schedule. It focuses on refining the County’s future land use vision as well as priority needs, opportunities, and action items in order to facilitate the community’s vision for future growth.
In December 2021 Forsyth County held three public meetings to gather feedback from the community. Click here to view a meeting recording, review meeting materials, participate in a short questionnaire, and provide input online.
The online input window has opened and will run from Friday, December 17th at 8am until Friday, January 7th at 5pm.
