Who owns the luxury bus parked at the Robert S. Jervay Place housing community?

The vehicle is not connected in any way to the state or Wilmington Housing Authority, said WHA CEO Michael J. Krause.

The bus may be owned by a visitor to a resident who lives at Robert S. Jervay Place, Krause said.

“It doesn’t have anything to do with us,” he said.

    The head dude of WHA has no idea who is parking a huge $300,000 motor home in his parking lot? This beast has been there off and on for over two years.

    I guess it will be ok to park my boat there then.

    “May be owned” by a visitor? I think the Housing Authority should review their Terms of Lease, specifically those regarding unregistered vehicles, proper parking and long-term guests in Section 13 of the 2011 Lease Agreement. A $100K+ luxury motor coach parked in public housing for the past three months – occupying a half dozen parking spaces, including part of a handicapped zone- and it “doesn’t have anything to do with us…” Sure, it could be totally innocent…so thanks for clearing that up!

    First of all, the reason it matters is because if its a resident and they “qualify” to live in public housing and can afford such a luxury, then perhaps they dont need to be living there and can open up an opportunity for someone who really does need to be there. Secondly, the people in Landfall, Wrightsville Beach, and on the downtown riverfront arent on public assistance so what they own isnt of any of the taxpayers concern. Im sorry, but once you go on any kind of public assistance that is funded by taxpayer dollars and it appears that you may not actually need it, then the public has the right and quite frankly the obligation to ask these kinds of questions. So again, is the luxury RV parked there owned by a resident of the community or not?

    Amazingly enough, the uber-expensive motorcoach disappeared overnight from the front parking lot at Jervay Place. I assume the resident’s “guest” has finally headed home after three months of visiting the Port City.

    Taxpayer dollars, so let’s see if I understand correctly, “It matters why Rosa sat in the front of the bus!?” That’s right that bus was funded by tax payer dollars, next it will be the police, firemen, trash, city and county workers, which you are not obligated to tell them who, what, when and where they can go, drive or park, however funded by taxpayer dollars ….. Maybe that LUXURY bus is the ticket out of public housing for someONE! Stay focused on the real society problems..
    Maybe if you parked your yacht in public housing you may inspire a young kid to desire and dream beyond living in public assistance and simply focusing on the current surroundings.

    The large luxury recreational vehicle has departed less than 72 hours after this forum topic was opened. This is an indication that there was/ is something awry with the owner of this vehicle.

    There are plenty of luxury recreational vehicles at any given time in Wilmington. These vehicles can be found parked in a leased parking spot at a venue similar to the KOA off Market street – not in a 100% state funded housing complex.

    Perhaps this person is a driver for someone that owns the bus. There are some working people that live in public housing.

    Does it really matter, Jervay is not HOUSING authority correction number one, however we noticed a giant bus. Not acknowledging the bruthas on the corner trying to bring back the old jervay and dove meadows. People get it together and write about something worth while. Guess there is a community watch out there, but they only wanted to report the poor big bus, not the crimes, LEAVE THE BUS alone it didn’t bother Jervay. Number 2, not the entire community is Tax paying nothing, if its that serious pay your taxes fix ur credit buy your own bus….Third, I repeat leave the bus alone….The bus has not done anything to u….

    Privacy Uproar:
    First: Jervay Place is most definitely a Wilmington Housing Authority property (here’s the link: http://www.wha.net/Housing_Programs/Multi-family%20&%20Tax%20Credit%20Housing/Property_%20Listings/Robert%20S%20Jervay_Elderly.htm ) That’s why the quotes in the story above are from the WHA CEO Mr. Krause,

    Secondly, I drive by Jervay Place between five and seven times a day making deliveries around the 8th and 10th Street areas – Since the old projects were torn down, I rarely see thugs selling drugs on the corners. They have moved elsewhere.

    Lastly, the bus was parked in a handicapped zone and didn’t “disappear” until folks, both in and outside the housing community, began questioning why a $200,000+ motorcoach was parked in a subsidized housing complex. If it was a homeowner’s vehicle, it wasn’t registered with WHA – Mr Krause stated as much. . If the owner was simply visiting a Jervay Resident, it was not abiding in the WHA regulations, specifically displaying a guest parking pass and not impeding a handicapped zone.

    The RV in question is now parked at 307 Martin St now off of 3rd street across from the former Nesbitt Courts. Oddly enough it is parked next to multiple buses belonging to Leap Of Faith Charters & Tours. Here is a link about that business.

    I found the first reply offering the author of the question the opportunity to rent the said “luxury bus” quite a coincidental, maybe Floyd was just being facetious. Now a few things about the other posts starting with Ottis’ 2nd post. Your question isn’t pertinent sir as Wrightsville Beach does not have public housing that we as tax payers are flipping the bill for. So it’s none of the taxpayers’ business who owns the yachts. I’m sure if your curiosity is getting the best of you though you can pull up public records. In the 3rd post from Luz I would suggest that you use proper grammar to assist you in your weak attempt to imply this question in My Reporter is racist. In your 8th post Luz you asked if it mattered why Rosa sat in the front of the bus, I didn’t quite get that analogy… Secondly in that post you lobbied the taxpayers of Wilmington to inquire how Police Officers, Fire Fighters, and Sanitation employees spend their salaries they earn by WORKING for the county or state. These fine individuals are being paid these wages to provide a service to our great community. Whereas those living in what Justin pointed out in the 13th post to be income restricted housing are being given our tax money to just reside. You should honestly be ashamed to have proposed we ask what the State and County employees do with their hard earned money. I agree with you whole heartedly that kids should dream to get out of public housing; perhaps the owner of the said “luxury bus” fueled this dream for these young people.
