Forsyth County Commission Begins Review of The Gathering at South Forsyth

May 11, 2023

The Forsyth County Commission heard a presentation from the developer of the proposed “The Gathering at South Forsyth,” development during their April 25th work session. Plans for the proposed arena and entertainment venue include: 1.6 million square feet of office and retail space, 750,000 square feet of arena space, 100,000 square-foot community center, 7,500 square-foot fire station, 2,400 residential units, Deck parking, 1.2-mile connective trail along the Big Creek Greenway, and a Grocery store.

While the project is believed to be a huge economic development opportunity for the county, and the region as well, the Commission was concerned about the impact the venue would have on traffic and what resources the county will have to provide.

The Board of Commissioners has asked the developers to return on May 9 during the next commission work session, for consideration of rezoning amendments and to hear additional information addressing the concerns of the commissioners.
