Forsyth County has proposed a 50,000 sq foot events center in Tanglewood Park between the horse stables and shelter #2. This project includes barns for 200 horses, horse trailer parking, and additional paved parking for 350 vehicles.
We oppose this project because it will 1.) spoil the natural beauty of the park, impair recreational users’ enjoyment of the park, and destroy wildlife habitat; 2) Consume the county's limited financial resources with little hope of returning the investment or breaking even; 3.) potentially endanger or displace the park’s current horse population; 4.) Contribute to storm water run-off and flooding within the park and surrounding neighborhoods; 5.) Contribute to traffic congestion in the community.
