Mohegan Lake Legal Defense Fund

History of this site

This site was originally set up to fight 3 of 5 zoning variances proposed by the FBC development at Sagamore Trail and Mohegan Ave that eliminates two single family homes while nearly quadrupling the parking and occupancy loads of the old Lakeland Jewish Center. That effort failed and the application is currently before the Planning Board.

While Save Mohegan Lake will continue to update you on that issue, we are moving on to all issues affecting the lake, such as Mohegan Lake Improvement District (MLID) meetings, agenda and budget. This site is not an official mouthpiece for MLID, but some updates will be provided on this site; the official site is located here.

We do it all here, so long as it's Mohegan Lake related. Feel free to submit comments, content, garage sale notices, police blotters, PSA's, essays on the virtues of our 105 acre ice rink, rants, raves, etc... We love it all.

Today In Euphemisms: Tree Inventory Plan

Below: A couple details from Site Design's tree inventory plan. Looks like that 55,000sf of woodlands they need to clear and grade will come within about 15 feet of Lakeside Drive. Wow. It's unclear what that area will be used for. Though as we've noted previously, preserving steep slopes in single family neighborhoods is one of the duties of the Planning Board.

Below: Those are the 12 trees they are required to inventory before they kill because they are over 7 inches in diameter; at least I believe that's the threshold. Many more trees and vegetation will have to be killed to make this new development happen.
