Susan Frady, who retired from the city of Hendersonville as the Development Assistance Director, was presented with the Order of the Long Leaf Pine by state Sen. Chuck Edwards.

 

Frady has dedicated 33 years of service to the City of Hendersonville, starting as an office assistant and working her way up to assistant zoning administrator, zoning administrator and finally development assistance director.

Known for providing excellent customer service, Frady has dedicated her career to serving the citizens of Hendersonville. She has also served as an adviser in professional organizations in the following capacities: Regional Director of the North Carolina Association of Floodplain Managers 2010-2012, Treasurer of the North Carolina Association of Floodplain Managers 2012 – present; and Regional Director of the North Carolina Association of Housing Code Officials.

During her tenure, the number of Hendersonville residents more than doubled from 6,862 to 14,157, while the city boundaries increased to 4,643 acres, much of which it attributable to Frady’s work on several major annexations. Her work has led to smart growth for residential development and the furtherance of Hendersonville’s brand as a charming, affordable small town where citizens enjoy an attractive quality of life.
