At our June 25thregular meeting, Councilman Combest shared the findings on the potential impacts of an industrial park in the specific area designated for it by Forsyth County.
Mike and I wanted to dig a little deeper and understand why that specific location was chosen, what type of return on investment our county would be anticipating and what type of positive economic impact it would have on Clemmons – this presentation represented where those findings led us. Here is a link to that presentation.
The information we found, specifically around the traffic impact and effect on home values caused the Council concern and we have brought those concerns to the county staff and commissioners.
Next Steps Include:
- Having an independent, third-party analysis of the Traffic Impact Analysis done for the industrial park.
- Revisiting the opportunity for concurrency and fine tuning the parks’ covenants with the county commissioners and staff.
