The Forsyth County Comprehensive Plan Steering Committee agreed to several changes during its final meeting Monday night.

The plan provides a guide to maintain the community’s vision as the county changes. Its update will cover the years 2012-32.

The public will have a chance to voice concerns and suggestions about the draft during the Forsyth County Planning Commission’s meeting next month.

Monday night, the committee reviewed the community agenda, part of the comprehensive plan.

"This really represents the community vision and how to implement the plan," said Vanessa Bernstein, senior long-range planner.

She presented the group with requests and suggestions for changes she received during a workshop on the plan’s update in August.

The changes approved by the committee include noting in the agenda the fact that schools offer facilities for public use and that schools and the public share recreational facilities.

The group also agreed to add a community node, but not an estate residential designation, in an area near Brookwood Road in south Forsyth.
