Lomita, also known as Lomita Village, is an urban neighborhood in the southeastern area of San Diego, California. It is bounded by Meadowbrook Drive and Skyline West to the west, unincorporated La Presa to the east and Skyline East to the south, and Jamacha to the north. Major thoroughfares in the neighborhood include San Vicente Street and Worthington Avenue. The neighborhood is part of the Skyline-Paradise Hills Community Planning Area.[1]

Background[edit]

Lomita Village was largely built in the early 1950s and held a large military family population.[2] Lomita is a largely residential district, with some small-scale commercial development.[3]

Geography[edit]

The Skyline-Paradise Hills Community as a whole makes up approximately 4,500 acres. Much like the surrounding neighborhoods of Bay Terraces, Skyline, and Paradise Hills, Lomita is comprised predominantly of low-density single-family homes spread across the hilly area. A major geographic feature is Paradise Valley, which runs on an east-west axis through the middle of the community and gives rise to the Paradise Creek, which flows into San Diego Bay. Lomita, along with Jamacha, Skyline, and North Bay Terrace, are directly north of Paradise Valley.[4]
