  • Lakeside turns out

  • “I don’t know if you noticed, but the whole town of Lakeside is here,” said local resident Barbara Sessions, pointing to over 500 people who recently filled up a 250-seat room at the Lakeside Community Center. Sessions addressed a panel of six county employees who came out in the boonies of East County to face the residents about a sand mine project proposed in El Monte Valley.

  • Standing Rock in Lakeside?

  • Bobby “Walking Stick” Wallace, national chief of the Longest Walk with the Barona Band of Mission Indians, announced few days ago that his tribe is stepping in to join locals against a sand mining project in El Monte Valley, Lakeside. The Viejas Band is joining, along with other bands from afar that will pack the room this evening (September 25)

  • Big-box war in Lakeside

  • A group of Lakeside residents (unaffiliated with any common nonprofit organization) sued a big-box store developer and the county of San Diego on October 23, claiming the county should have required an environmental impact report before the company started building on a four-acre site on old Highway 80, just east of Lake Jennings Park Road.

The Hix Snedeker website doesn't offer details on the Lakeside Tractor Supply store — though safe to assume the 19,000-square-foot project is included in their 2.5-million-square-foot tally
  • Lakeside's River Park

  • Lakeside’s 100-acre preserve used to be a highly channelized river with a surrounding sand mine. It is now becoming a beautiful riparian willow forest and flood plain. In early 2008, the first phase of a 3-mile trail was opened to the public along the river from Channel Road to Riverford Road.

Lakeside’s River Park used to be a channelized river between sand pits. Now it’s a lush riparian habitat.
  • Loser's Guide to Lakeside

  • Lakeside has tried desperately to overcome its redneck image, and it has, to a certain extent. There is plenty of new development in the city, bringing more middle-class families who want to escape an increasingly urban San Diego. Telling your friends you would like to live in a rural setting sounds so much nicer than “white flight.”

Lakeside Hotel. In the late ’80s it was transformed into a biker bar and a flophouse. Fights and stabbings were common.
  • The Lakeside River Irregulars

  • San Diego — To get to Lisa Roger's house in the Eucalyptus Hills area of Lakeside, you have to drive past the sand-mining operations, tractor-repair yards, and prefab concrete outfits that line the San Diego River in this unincorporated East County community. It's these lots that I've driven out here to talk to her about. "We moved here from University City three years ago," Rogers says. "We liked the space you could find out here and the natural beauty of the hills.
