CUMMING - Crews are ready to begin construction of the Mason Street Parking Facility located near the Forsyth County Administration Building in Cumming. <br /> <br /> The five-level, 491-space structure is the second of two parking decks that are part of the new courthouse and jail project.<br /> <br /> In preparation for the start of work on the new facility, the construction fence that was erected in April for site preparation is being extended this weekend.<br /> <br /> This will result in the loss of the county employee parking area on the north side of the County Administration Building and the 15-minute loading and unloading spaces along School Street. The Water and Sewer Department payment drop-box is being moved from School Street to the grassy area near the one-hour public parking lot along Mason Street.<br /> <br /> Construction of the three-level, 222-space Castleberry Parking Facility at the intersection of Castleberry Road and Maple Street is complete. At its June 5 meeting, the Forsyth County Board of Commissioners approved a Resolution conveying title of that deck to the city of Cumming. The opening of the Castleberry Parking Facility will be at the discretion of city officials.<br /> <br /> Weekday, daytime public parking spaces are available at several locations near the County Administration Building (please see map at www.forsythco.com). Look for the parking spaces marked with a red dot in designated lots. Limited public parking areas at the County Administration Building are located off of Mason Street and are accessible from Main Street.
