The first Starbucks location is coming to the city of Forsyth.

A preliminary site plan for the coffee shop at 318 Russell Parkway has been approved by the city’s Planning and Zoning Design and Review Board.

“They would like to start construction in March, but we’re still going through the permitting process,” said Tammie Pierson, the city’s economic development director. “So, hopefully, they’ll start moving dirt next month.”
