Now that its $65 million bond referendum was passed by voters Tuesday, Forsyth Technical Community College will move forward on a series of capital projects including a $16 million aviation training center at Smith Reynolds Airport in Winston-Salem, extensive renovations to the school’s main campus and additions such as a new library and technology-driven design and maker spaces.
The $65 million bond package passed by a 74 percent to 26 percent margin, receiving approximately 117,880 yes votes compared with 42,400 no votes. It is the third time Forsyth Tech has received bond money for capital improvements.
