I was born here, grew up here, ... Until recently via trulia, I had never heard about "Orchards area concerned citizens". It is HERE on trulia that it first came to my attention.
I know of no specific activity related to this area or group that would impact a purchase today.
Redlining is of course illegal, and equal opportunity is upheld always.
If you look at how trulia categorizes other names in the area, the "field" this name occupies describes specific geographic areas and communities. No one in vancouver recognizes this as a community name, and neither does the CITY OF VANCOUVER
here is the link to vancouver neighborhoods, provided by the city:
Do not give this description any weight. How this neighborhood designation got started .. I have no knowledge of.. the ONLY thing I can think of it might relate to is a geographic area that may have resisted annexation to the city, or zoning when the 205 freeway was under construction in the early 70s.
check the CITY's geographic neighborhoods.. you wont find it. REMEMBER, Trulia is JUST A DATA aggregator.. "garbage in and garbage out". For the most part, they are a platform to sell advertising and use REALTORS data among other data resources to create a business by selling advertising..
then they encourage us to provide our time for FREE for them, and PAY them to advertise, so we can actually conduct OUR business, realestate.
