CUMMING — Forsyth County will have two more weeks to reach a decision on the court-ordered rezoning of Lanier Golf Course.

With the original Sunday deadline looming, the commission voted 5-0 Thursday to postpone the matter to its July 7 meeting.

The delay will give the course owners, neighbors and the county time to finalize a possible compromise after several meetings this week, said County Attorney Ken Jarrard.

"Those have reached various levels of success, although there is still work to be done," Jarrard said.

"However, in light of the progress that has been made and in light of the looming court order. ... I was given permission to seek out a consent order extending the deadline for compliance."

The golf course issue began in 2007, when the owners sued the county after commissioners rejected their request to rezone the property from agricultural to a master planned district.
