Public input meeting for ordinance changes next week
Forsyth County

Next week, Forsyth County residents concerned about zoning issues will be able to give input to changes to ordinances regarding trees, mass grading and storm water design.

From 6–8 p.m. on Wednesday, June 20, a public input meeting looking at the three ordinances will be held at the Forsyth County Administration Building, located at 110 E. Main Street in downtown Cumming. A formal presentation will start at 6:30 p.m.

“These tasks are related to policy measures linked to both land use and quality of life, two central elements of the comprehensive plan that require action items to be addressed in order to achieve the community’s vision and goals for the future,” said Deputy Director of Planning and Community Development Vanessa Bernstein-Goldman in a news release.

The three ordinances were identified for implementation in the latest update to the Forsyth County comprehensive plan, called Foster Forsyth, and are bundled together “in an effort to consider regulatory changes pertaining to the removal of trees and movement of earth during the development process.”

Public comments will be used for future recommendations and enhancement of the standards.
