Meeting Monday on Fuqua development
Forsyth County

Forsyth County residents will have a chance this week to voice concerns over a development at the corner of Peachtree Parkway (Hwy. 141) and Brookwood Road.

On Monday at 6 p.m. at Sharon Forks Library, a public participation meeting will be held to discuss an application to rezone 76 acres from commercial business district, CBD, to master planned district, MPD for a development including 29 residential lots, 129 attached residential units, 250 apartments and commercial space being developed by Fuqua Acquisitions II, LLC.

“This is the scheduled public participation that is required when a development is filed,” said District 2 Commissioner Dennis Brown. “It invites the citizens out as a chance to get a briefing from the developer about details of this. It’s going to be a master planned district, MPD.”

Brown said the meeting would both let residents give thoughts on the project and for the developer to get feedback to make decisions about possible changes.

Development of the land has been a longtime issue for nearby residents

“There have been several versions of the come before the commission, none of which have been met with much favor by the residents,” Brown said.

Brown said too many residential units and not enough commercial draws were disliked by residents previously.
