Review the meeting materials and offer input by June 2 at

Community meetings on the Forsyth County comprehensive plan update will take a summer break before concluding in the fall.

The next and final meeting will be a review of all the components of the community agenda, including issues and opportunities, the future development map and more, said Vanessa Bernstein, senior long-range planner. A date has not been set.

Monday night, a group of 25 people gathered to offer input on policies, the last portion of the community agenda.

“Policies really are the method through which we will implement the community vision,” Bernstein said.

The policy statements address how the county will put the plan into action in a variety of areas, including housing, natural and cultural resources, community facilities and services and transportation.

Bernstein urged attendees to give their input, including adding or deleting statements, noting comments and prioritizing policies.

Feedback will also be accepted online through June 2.

The steering committee will then use the information to form a short-term work plan, which will address the county’s actions in working toward the comprehensive plan in the next five years.

The full plan will serve as a policy guide for decisions related to growth and land use for the years 2012-32.
