Another affordable housing complex is coming to the Port City. The Wilmington Housing Authority broke ground today on New Brooklyn Homes at Robert Taylor Estates.

The environmentally-friendly complex is on 4th Street. It will feature 48 townhomes with back patios and a community center.

"I am genuinely excited about this project," WHA's Michael Krause said. "And that to me is really exciting."

The project is expected to be finished around this time next year.

Same 'ol, same 'ol...

problems will be there when the folks move in. As SurfCity Tom said, until the authorities hold the residents accountable for their actions, the same 'ol drug dealin' crack ho's and thugs will roam the streets.

But requiring drug tests would only get the National Association Of Complaining People riled up screaming the residents are being discriminated against.

No one has the gall or balls to take a stand.

Well he should be happy

He promised to a salary study and NOW he doesn't want to give them their raise, he received the study infomation last week. He should be proud of his self seeing as he won't let the employees even buy ink pens. Personal view he is a poor leader.

Am I reading this correctly?

"I am genuinely excited about this project," WHA's Michael Krause said. "And that to me is really exciting."

He's excited about being excited.

How about exciting the future residents by requiring drug tests for all occupants prior to their move in date and then random drug tests periodically?

How about exciting the future residents by requiring all of them, who are physically able, to perform the lawn care and building maintenance?

How about exciting the future residents with a "no tolerance" policy. Deface or damage the property -- out you go. Convicted of any offense other than a minor traffic violation -- out you go.

Drive a high end luxury car or SUV, do not even apply. If you move one onto the property, out you go.

That should create some excitement.

It is about time someone mention these items. It helps promote pride in your neighborhood and saves the government money. I don't have the luxury of having a landscaping crew at my home. Maybe then the residents would stand up and say enough not in my neighborhood.
