Dates Set For Southeast Forsyth Design Community Workshop

A Series of Southeast Forsyth Design Initiative Community Character Workshops have been set.

Dates and times have been announced for a series of Southeast Forsyth Design Initiative Community Character Workshop to help shape the community's identity. Attendees will be invited to provide input on a variety of topics that will impact the southeastern Forsyth County community.

The approximate boundaries for this area are Ga. 400 to the west, McGinnis Ferry Road to the south and north of Hwy. 20 on the northern boundary.

Items will include a logo and tagline, as well as other marketing recommendations to help identify the area. These recommendations will help support a brand style as currently underway that will also incorporate commercial design standards as an additional element of the project.
