Forsyth County News


Also during Thursday's board of commissioners meeting, Forsyth County commissioners:

• Postponed until Jan. 20 a decision on whether to amend zoning conditions to match a proposed construction project by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in north Forsyth. The property, near Hwys. 9 and 369, borders Mountain Lake Church, whose members voiced concerns about traffic safety and congestion. The decision, which will allow the parties to work out their issues, followed a public hearing on the matter.

• Repealed a park ordinance that prohibits weapons at public gatherings. One resident spoke against the measure, but county officials said they had to adopt it to avoid conflicting with state laws.

• Appointed Pam Bowman to the District 1 planning commission post.

• Held two public hearings regarding a planned expansion of a drug rehabilitation facility on Hwy. 141. By state law, the commission cannot take action for six months. No one spoke in opposition.
