The Village of Cashiers is Preparing a Small Area Plan!
Jackson County is working with the Village of Cashiers to develop a Small Area Plan for the Cashiers Commercial Development Districts and surrounding area. The Jackson County Land Use Plan 2040 adopted in 2017 recommended that Cashiers prepare a plan that would guide future growth and development. This project presents the first opportunity for residents, businesses, and other stakeholders to have a say in the Village’s future since the Southwestern Commission prepared the Mountain Landscapes Initiative in 2007-2008. This Small Area Plan, with participation by the community, will reflect the vision and unique identity of the mountain community. The Plan will establish goals and create strategies relevant to land use, transportation, utilities, natural resources, economic development, and more.
