FORSYTH COUNTY, N.C. — The former Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office on Third Street and the Forsyth County Youth Detention Center on Sturmer Park Circle could be getting some new tenants soon, according to the Winston-Salem Journal.

Monday, the Forsyth County Board of Commissioners will consider authorizing short-term lease agreements with the state for space in the old sheriff’s office and for 10.3 acres off of Sturmer Park Circle, which encompasses the youth detention center and the former group home located nearby.
