County updates changes to admin building, former courthouse

Some changes are coming to a pair of Forsyth County buildings.

In a press release on Monday, the county government updated projects being done at the Forsyth County Administration Building and at the Courthouse Annex, which is in the old county courthouse building.

For the administration building, a project will soon start to relocate and expand the large conference room used by commissioners during work sessions. To make room for the new area, which will have increased seating for visitors, changes will be made to the configuration of offices of commissioners and others. Funding for the renovations will come from SPLOST VII.

“We are looking forward to having the additional space and seating for residents and staff who attend the board’s work sessions,” said County Manager Eric Johnson. “In addition to increased capacity in this room, we will also be installing technology that will allow for overflow and remote viewing of meetings held in the conference room.”

Work on the new meeting area will start in late-November or December and is expected to be completed in spring 2019. During construction, work sessions will be held in the commission’s regular meeting room.

Landscape work at the building will start in October.

At the annex, crews will continue a landscaping project that started in August and is expected to wrap-up by mid-November. The annex will also receive new signage designating it as the “Forsyth County Courthouse Annex” by the end of the year.
