Welcome to ReCodify Cashiers


ReCodify Cashiers is a new initiative by Jackson County, in partnership with the Cashiers Community, to update and improve the development regulations and development application review processes that apply within the Cashiers Commercial District.  Section 9.3 of the Jackson County Unified Development Ordinance (or “UDO”) includes the standards for the Cashiers Commercial District.  UDO Section 9.3 includes the rules for the types of allowable uses in the area and how development must be configured.  In 2019, Jackson County adopted a new small area plan for Cashiers that creates a framework for how the community will develop in the future.  The next step is to revise the development regulations for Cashiers in order to implement the recommendations in the small area plan.  ReCodify Cashiers is the effort to revise the development regulations.
