SOUTH FORSYTH -- Tempers flared during a public hearing this week for a proposed overlay that would allow for apartments at a popular outdoor mall in south Forsyth. During a meeting on Thursday, Forsyth County commissioners held a public hearing, with District 2 Commissioner Brian Tam recused and District 3 Commissioner Todd Levent absent, on the proposed South Forsyth Livable Center Overlay for The Collection at Forsyth. Prior to the public hearing, it was announced that no action would be taken at the meeting, with a vote scheduled for the commission’s Nov. 3 regular meeting. --- Background and proposal --- In summer 2015, commissioners began discussing the addition of housing at the mall on Peachtree Parkway to expand to a mixed-use, or live-work-play, development.
