Forsyth County will host three interactive public input meetings — two in-person, one virtual — in December as part of Foster Forsyth 2022, a 12-month planning effort that will culminate in a partial update to the county’s comprehensive plan.
The meetings will be the first round of a series of meetings that will include community feedback via in-person and online activities. The first round of meetings will be held from 6-8 p.m. on the following dates:
• Dec. 8 - Fowler Park Recreation Center Community Room, 4110 Carolene Way;
• Dec. 14 - Central Park Recreation Center Banquet Room, 2300 Keith Bridge Rd.;
• Dec. 15 - Virtual Meeting hosted on Zoom (Meeting ID: 896 5526 3110) Join via phone audio at 1-929-205-6099.
The same material will be covered during all three meetings. An online survey will also be available for public participation in December and will be available on the Foster Forsyth 2022 webpage.
“Foster Forsyth establishes a vision for future growth and development in our county, guides land-use decisions and helps inform other investments related to growth and development,” said Vanessa Bernstein-Goldman, deputy director of planning and community development. “Community engagement and input is needed during this process to help map the desired intensity and distribution of future growth in Forsyth County.”

Georgia requires communities to update their comprehensive plans every five years, including a reevaluation of needs and opportunities, preferred options for future land use as well as action steps to achieve community goals.
