Cayce's overall roads are inadequate and need drastic improvement. Its sidewalks need expanding. The city streets are poorly lit and need updating. Also, the city should develop there own solar energy system and should develop more affordable housing. The city needs to allocate more funding from the tax base to build new and improved existing parks and recreation facilities. As well as the business district needs expanding. Also, build a new public safety facility for its fire, police and 911 operations.

I was born and raised in Cayce, SC. I attended public schools in Cayce until my senior year of high school where I transferred to Dutch Fork high school, which is about 35-40 minutes away from where I grew up. The public schools had a below average education- focusing on very standard points and views and lacked challenges that aid human growth. Funding was very low as the school could only provide a Musical performance every 4 years, so as a performing Arts major, this made progression harder to experience. Cayce has a special place in my heart because it made me the person I am today, however, if a person is not well-off, their children will have serious difficulty breaking through that social status barrier as an adult in the workforce.
I live on the Avenues, so live is calm and pretty. Recently neighborhoods are changing, becoming more rough, because so many college students are moving into avenue houses. The avenues were previously filled with elderly people, so yards were kept up and life was peaceful, but more recently, because of those people passing away, the houses have been selling for cheep and the local colleges students are moving in. Neighborhoods are becoming more rough, and the education in terms of high school and middle school are completely horrendous. The high school (Brookland Cayce) is a grade F school. I would not say its a safe place for children to be and it is not a supportive environment.
