East County Business News – New homes planned in Lakeside

June 17, 2024 – Our town took a magical trip down memory lane today. The Model T Ford Club of America rolled into town for their 2024 National Tour. 

Dozens of these magnificent Model T’s lined our streets. It felt like stepping back in time.

The visitors took a stroll through our town’s rich history, from the old Lakeside Inn, the Auto Speedway route, made famous by racing legend Barney Oldfield, to our charming historic buildings and homes.

The Lakeside Historical Society opened their doors, welcoming everyone to explore the chapel, museum, Gift Shop, and the Speedway monument. It was a little slice of the past brought back to life.

Their visit was short, but the memories will last a lifetime. A huge thank you to the Model T Ford Club of America for stopping by and making the day in our hometown so special.

KB Home Coastal Inc. of Los Angeles has purchased 67 residential lots on 16.5 acres at 10025 and 10103 Ranchitos Road in Lakeside for a planned community of 67 single-family homes, according to brokerage firm Colliers International. The purchase price was $6 million and Colliers represented the seller, Loma Verde Inc. Each home is expected to have a lot size of roughly 6,000 square feet. Construction start date was not announced.
