A Cashiers Small Area Plan Draft has been completed by Jackson County consulting team Stewart Consulting and Friction Shift Projects. The document provides the Village of Cashiers with goals and strategies relevant to land use, transportation, utilities, natural resources, economic development including pedestrian safety, housing and other key area factors based on response and participation from the community. The Jackson County Planning Department hosted a three-day Small Area Plan Workshop in June of 2018 for Cashiers Area residents, business owners and stakeholders to provide input on key factors for future area planning and economic growth in the Cashiers Commercial District and surrounding area. The open-house style charrette, presentations and seminars were held at the Glenville-Cashiers Community Rec Center June 4-6 and provided generous opportunity for community members to share visions for progression. A small area plan survey for Cashiers community members provided additional opportunity for input.
View the full draft plan here and stay up-to-date with all Jackson County's Planning efforts on Jacksonnc.org/cashiers-small-area-plan. A review of the plan is expected to take place at the October Cashiers Planning Council meeting.

The Cashiers Area Chamber of Commerce along with the Jackson County Tourism Development Authority are delighted with the creation and installation of new chevron “Visitor Center” signage to promote the Chamber offices as the southern-most visitor center location for Jackson County. The sign, strategically designed to coordinate with existing area signage, was produced and installed by AGM Signs located in Sapphire, NC.
The low hanging sign is designed to be visible to both East and Westbound traffic traveling on US Hwy 64 to and from the Crossroads and was coordinated with the Cashiers Valley Garden Club who generously manage the location’s landscaping.
