After holding two public input meetings on the possibility of building a Multi-Use Agricultural Event Center in Tobaccoville, Forsyth County Government is accepting additional online feedback until April 30.
The input meetings were held on March 15 and 30. The entire meeting from March 30 can be viewed on the YouTube page of Forsyth County Government, North Carolina. An online input survey, along with information about the project, can be found at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/MUAECrollinghills.
In 2016, Forsyth County voters approved Parks & Recreation Facilities Bonds, which included $5 million to develop a Multi-Use Agricultural Event Center at a County park. After considering several County park locations, the Rolling Hills Drive property in Tobaccoville is being evaluated as a potential site. Additionally, the Forsyth County Center for the N.C. Cooperative Extension would be relocated to the site from its current location on Fairchild Drive in Winston-Salem. Cooperative Extension focuses on sustaining agriculture and forestry, protecting the environment, and youth and family development programs and initiatives.
