Winston-Salem voters will vote on a $62.15 million bond referendum in November as a result of the Forsyth County Board of Commissioners approving the measure last week.
If voters also approve the measure, the proceeds will be used to fund an expansion effort at Forsyth Technical Community College. That includes adding classroom space and building an administrative facility and a career center.
Forsyth Tech would acquire the property now owned by the school system in a non-financial transfer.
“Even with the off-campus satellite centers we opened in recent years, Forsyth Tech is bursting at the seams,” president Gary Green said in a news release. “More people will be able to get job training or retraining or a start on a bachelor’s degree.”
