Fletcher Town Center is a ground floor opportunity.
The Town of Fletcher is seeking capable development partners to aid in the development of a mixed-use downtown business district that will connect to Town Hall, as well as our park and greenway system. With its established subdivisions and thriving industries, Fletcher is just missing one piece of the puzzle - a vibrant center where neighbors can shop, learn, dine and socialize.
The Town of Fletcher is committed to working with developers, business leaders, banks, healthcare companies, entrepreneurs, and academic institutions in order to fully realize the vision of the Fletcher Town Center.

Recognized as one of the fastest-growing small towns in Western North Carolina, Fletcher is a diamond in the rough. Nestled between Asheville and Hendersonville, Fletcher is an extremely desirable location.
Asheville has been frequently noted as a top destination, most currently in 2015 by Frommer’s, as highlighted on Good Morning America. From the beauty of the Great Smoky Mountains to the outdoor opportunities to the “Beer City USA” title, Asheville is the place to go for living the sweet life.
Hendersonville is also a popular destination, from the streets of the quaint downtown to the affordable cost of living for the quality of life.
As these two areas grow together, Fletcher is the link that will make this transition a smooth one.
There are reasons why big businesses and nationally-recognized companies choose Fletcher, North Carolina.
Hospitality and entrepreneurship are integral parts of our history.
Fletcher developed as a stopping point for travelers and the railroad between Hendersonville and Asheville. Dr. George Fletcher located his house at the crossroads of Old Plank Road (now US 25) and Howard Gap Road in 1856. His house not only accommodated his growing family but also served as an inn for many travelers. By 1860, Dr. Fletcher had built a blacksmith’s shop, a store and tannery, and other families had settled in the area starting businesses of their own.
Today, the Town of Fletcher has an established tradition of hospitality, business development, and neighbors caring and working together for the community. The Town is committed to working with local businesses and industries to create a vibrant local economy and a high quality of life. An example of this is the town’s relationship with the Fletcher Area Business Association (FABA).
Location, Location, Location.
The Town’s proximity to Asheville Regional Airport, Interstate 26, and the major tourism destinations of Henderson and Buncombe counties make our area a desirable place to conduct business and to live. Fletcher is located midway between Hendersonville and Asheville and is surrounded by rolling hills and views of the mountains on all sides. It is not surprising that the Fletcher area is home to some of the premier manufacturing and industrial facilities of the southeast.
We are a leader in recreation.
The Town of Fletcher’s Parks and Recreation Department is working to make Fletcher the leader in recreation facilities and services in Western North Carolina and to be an active partner in health and wellness programs. The Town is implementing a Greenways Master Plan to link businesses and industries with residential and commercial districts, as well as the Town’s recreational facilities. Through an infrastructure of trails, parks, and sidewalks, the Town of Fletcher provides increased opportunities for recreational activities and alternative transportation for both residents and employees.
Fletcher is future thinking and action oriented.
Through the Town’s strategic approach to planning, our community is striving to accomplish today what will position us for the future. Fletcher’s Land Use Plan, zoning and subdivision regulations, greenway master plan, and overlay for its future downtown district have created a foundation that will be supportive of the Fletcher Town Center. Town staff is always looking for new opportunities and resources to help expand and improve infrastructure and services while keeping our tax rate as low as possible.
