(Forsyth County, GA) An additional public hearing about the Forsyth County Comprehensive Plan is now scheduled for August 4. The vote to hold another public hearing came during the Board of Commissioners' regular meeting on Thursday, July 7 because of a few disagreements between the commissioners over some of the updates in the plan.

Foster Forsyth 2022 focuses on the growth and development of the county. The current Comprehensive Plan was completed in 2017.

Amanda Hatton, the community planning manager at Blue Cypress Consulting and the project manager for the County Comprehensive Plan and Lauren Blaszyk, the project manager for Pond and Company, announced the following changes to the plan:

The next public hearing for the Comprehensive Plan will be during a Board of Commissioners meeting on August 4 at the Forsyth County Administration Building (110 E. Main St.) in the Commissioners’ Meeting Room (suite 220, second floor).
