Forsyth HOA & Homeowners is a volunteer organization whose mission it is to educate taxpayers on the consequences of unplanned growth. Growth too quickly, and building more homes per square mile than ever before results in lagging infrastructure improvements such as roads, schools, parks, sewer and other services. Find out more about us at www.forsythhoa.org.
Dear Forsyth HOA & Homeowners Members, RES3 Petition Update: Have you noticed a change this year? We have seen more trailers at our schools and more congestion on our roads. This has been caused in part, by putting in too many homes per square mile than ever before in Forsyth. Our infrastructure can't keep up.
Will you spend45 secondsto help?
Make sure you, your family and neighbors have signed the petition to return RES 3 lot sizes to 14,500 square feet, as opposed to the current 10,000 square feet - and have your HOA distribute it. It's rare in life that such a small effort could have such a great impact on your daily quality of life.
We have just surpassed 3,700signatures! While this is an incredible milestone, we need more participation before the next public hearing to really send a message to our commissioners.
Our last newsletter explained the importance of this zoning category, and how returning it to its prior standards will help to alleviate our congested roads, schools and parks in the long term.
As we said in our last newsletter, our Forsyth County Planning Commissioners unanimously voted in favor of restoring the 14,500 square foot standard, but we still need our Board of Commissioners to vote in favor. Please join your neighbors by taking one minute to sign the petition below.
If you have an HOA in your neighborhood, please encourage them to distribute the petition.

Help our Scouts - Introducing Pack 19!
Crowded classrooms and traffic jams are some of the visible signs of growth in South Forsyth. Other issues aren't nearly as visible. Growth has caused our Scouting organizations to grow as well, and one of our packs has been forced to split in two. The all new pack 19 out of Shiloh Point and St. Brendan's Catholic Church needs your help to get started. This year's Trail's End Popcorn sale will play an integral role in helping Pack 19 be able to purchase all of the new equipment they need.
