The Stokes County Commissioners are considering the next steps to take in planning for the county’s own community college campus in the Meadows area. At a meeting on Monday night, the commissioners agreed to move to next meeting’s action agenda a form which serves as tentative approval of the county’s intent to pursue a project up to $6 million. The board also set dates for future school site visits with Forsyth Technical Community College officials to look at examples of community college designs.

According to the proposed North Carolina Community College System Tentative Approval for Capital Improvement form, the Stokes County Forsyth Tech campus would be roughly 20,000 square feet and located on the Meadows property off of Dodgetown Road.
