Second tranportation open house set for Monday

The second and third of five planned traffic open houses will be held next week.

On Monday at West Forsyth High School and Wednesday at the Central Park Recreation Center, a pair of open houses will be held for locals to discuss the on-going update to the county’s comprehensive transportation plan, which will look at the long-range plans for vehicular, freight, bicycle and pedestrian needs.

The first of the meetings is on Wednesday at the Forsyth Conference Center at Lanier Tech. All meetings are from 6-8 p.m.

All meetings will have the same information and are open house sessions, meaning there will be no formal presentation and attendees can come and go.

The final meetings will be held at Lambert High School on April 24 and Hampton Park Library on April 27.

Previously, Michael Kray, of Jacobs Engineering, the firm handling the transportation plan, said the plan would use information they compiled in the process and input from the community.

“This is a data-driven plan, and we’re going to go back out to the community and make sure we get their collaboration and their input to verify the things we are identifying are correct,” he said.

Forsyth County Commissioners will adopt the plan by December.

Under state rules, counties must update the plan every five years. The county’s current plan is from 2011.

Other meetings will be held in the future including; workshops and pop-up meetings.

More information, including display materials and an online survey, will be available at or by contacting Kray at (404) 978-7620 or by email at
