Movin’ On In

First residents move in to Orchard Village

Express editor
“Movin’ On Up” wasn’t just a theme song from the classic TV show, “The Jeffersons” — for many Winters families, it could serve as the soundtrack as they move into brand new apartments at Orchard Village. According to the city’s housing programs manager, Dan Maguire, the majority of the families moving into the complex are already in Winters, many living in cramped, overcrowded accommodations with relatives and apartments that are too small, or conversely, houses that are too big and a strain on their budgets because that’s all they can find to rent.
The Delgado family is a perfect example of local people in need of move-up housing. Signing their papers on Friday, AnaRosa Delgado says their current two bedroom apartment was too small for their three children. They’ll be moving into a four bedroom apartment at Orchard Village, and Ana Rosa says although they’ll be paying a little more for rent, it’s worth it to her to have more space and also her own laundry hookups, which each apartment features in addition to a public laundry room. . . .
