While many communities continued to struggle with attracting new business and infrastructure, 2012 was another good year for Forsyth County. In 2011, community economic development projects generated some $43 million in new capital investment, said Randall Toussaint, vice president of economic development for the Cumming-Forsyth County Chamber of Commerce. “This year, we are on pace to surpass last year’s totals,” Toussaint said, in a statement.
