NORTHEAST FORSYTH -- Abandoned and unfinished homes in a northeast Forsyth County subdivision once the center of a mortgage fraud scheme have been demolished, about a decade after construction was stopped. During the final Forsyth County Board of Commissioners work session of the year, County Attorney Ken Jarrard gave commissioners an update on the infamous Greenleaf neighborhood, which halted construction in 2006 and sat in disrepair until commissioners decided to move forward with demolition in 2015. “This was the subdivision up in the northern part of the county that had been partially developed,” Jarrard said.
