Mayor Michael Butler

Mayor Michael Butler of Orangeburg, South Carolina and Eli Rozier christened the 570 block of Bayne Street. Once a working section of town with factories within walking distance of the neighborhood,it became a blotted section that fell victim to the downturn in the real estate market during the great recession years (2008-2012). The Avail Group bought the property from Bank of America in 2013. Through a collaborative agreement with the city, The Avail Group laid out a 24 month revitalization plan that concluded this summer. Mayor Michael Butler was amazed at the results and was quoted as saying

” The commitment that The Avail Group has made toward this project has enhanced the beautification initiative this administration has for Orangeburg, South Carolina.”
