Forsyth County kicked off their comprehensive plan update last month with consultants and Council members Jacobs and Kimley-Horn. The first community workshops are being held this week and next week in various locations around the County.
Once adopted, the comprehensive development plan will guide the County’s policy decisions related to growth and development moving forward. The plan will address housing types, commercial development locations, transportation priorities and economic development in Forsyth. Additionally, the completed plan will also likely influence the ongoing discussion of impact fees, residential zoning and permitting and other growth concerns prevalent in the County. Members of the Forsyth Board of Commissioners are encouraging all stakeholders, including developers and property owners in the County with current and future projects to provide input on the plan as the outcomes from this planning process will shape policy and regulations and provide justification for zoning decisions.
The Council will be in attendance at the community workshops and is working with County staff to organize a stakeholder meeting with Council members at our Forsyth Advisory Committee meeting. In addition to attending workshops, all Council members with current or future projects in the County are encouraged to complete the online survey to provide input early on in the planning process.
