VISION CASHIERS MISSION
A Bit of Background
Our mission is to foster and encourage prudent, sustainable growth of the Cashiers area so that our community can prosper as a year-round economy and destination, preserving and capitalizing on its natural assets and heritage as a great place to live and visit.
Vision Cashiers promotes policies and actions that retain the look, feel and scale of our village environment. We support growth and development that respects our heritage and natural resources. We recognize change is inevitable and maintaining the status quo is not possible over the long term. Cashiers will either grow or decline. We embrace growth and we commit to ensuring that growth in Cashiers is smart, prudent, and sustainable. We believe it is critical to guide appropriate development through a county driven, independent expert led, planning process that is thoughtful, transparent and open to public participation.
HOW CAN I HELP?
At Vision Cashiers, we are dedicated to improving the opportunities for our children. Many residents don't know the variety of offerings Cashiers provides and we are out to communicate that. We invite you to learn more and engage in this initiative.
With our organization’s vision always in mind, we strive to provide high speed internet for the entire area.
We recently installed a free WiFi district (11 hotspots) for the commercial area of Cashiers.
HEALTH & WELLNESS
We are focused on improving access to doctors and creating health and wellness initiatives for all residents and visitors throughout the Cashiers plateau.
"Call When Sick" is a virtual access service to a doctor.
With our mission always in mind, we strive to find new strategies for dealing with this challenge. Crime prevention is something that we take very seriously, and our task force is out to get all in the community acting on making it a safe place. We have 5 basic messages for the community.
The problem we are working to address is having housing for professional families (Teachers, nurses and full time managers). Our mission is to create apartment and duplex housing within Cashiers for those workers of the Cashiers community.
We are out to build alliances with schools, employers, country clubs, the Boys and Girls Club of the Plateau and other facilities to train the unskilled to be employable in our market. Our intention is to construct a bridge leading from area schools, their graduates, and a vetted/skilled workforce directly to our small businesses, country clubs, local trades, and other area employers.
PATHWAYS AND PRESERVATION
The Pathways and Preservation Task Force works to enhance and expand the natural pathway system thoughout the village. Also it manages a highway and byway trash collection program.
This task force is working to create and build sidewalks on the major streets and highways throughout Cashiers. We created an alliance with Jackson County and the North Carolina Department of Transportation to help make it happen.
Foster and encourage prudent, sustainable, quality growth of the Cashiers area so that our community can prosper as a year round economy and destination, preserving and capitalizing on its natural assets and heritage and known as a great place to live and visit.
We encourage and endorse organizations and projects that contribute to the cultural enrichment of Cashiers through music, theatre, and dance, with emphasis on initiatives that connect us to our Appalachian heritage.
