The Diamond - Lake Elsinore Storm (1359 words)
A small lakeside town with a population of just 3,800 people in 1976, Lake Elsinore wasn’t exactly booming by the time the city's Redevelopment Agency built a stadium in 1994 at a cost of $22 million, so the decision to place a ballpark here in the first place was curious.
Lake Elsinore spends almost $2 million a year paying off stadium debt, and will continue doing so until the construction bonds are finally paid off in 2030.
But Lake Elsinore has been rapidly growing since the turn of this century, when the population was still only 28,928, and developing an entertainment district on the barren land that surrounds the ballpark is high on the city’s wish list.
