CUMMING - Site preparation for the new Mason Street Parking Facility – the second of two new parking decks planned in downtown Cumming – is expected to begin in April.

Both are part of the new courthouse and jail project funded by the voter-approved Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax (SPLOST) VII program.

The five-level, 491-space Mason Street Parking Facility will be built near the County Administration Building.

Construction of the three-level, 222-space Castleberry Parking Facility at the intersection of Castleberry Road and Maple Street continues. This parking facility is expected to open for use in May.

Forsyth County will continue to provide designated parking and shuttling for people summoned for jury duty.

On the day you first report for jury duty, parking will be available in a designated area of the Cumming Fairgrounds parking lot off of Castleberry Road across from the Fairgrounds lot. From this parking area, those summoned for jury duty may choose to ride a shuttle or walk to the County Administration Building. The shuttle will be available from 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. on jury summons days only for travel between the designated parking area and the County Administration Building.

Those summoned for jury duty should allow extra time in the morning and be prepared to show their jury summons to board the shuttle. General questions about jury service should be directed to the Forsyth County Clerk of Courts’ office at or 770.781.2120 ext. 3106. Visit for updates
