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.

Yorktown Zoning Board of Appeals Public Hearing June 23rd, 2011, 7PM

It's going to be a hectic week leading up to the public hearing. I wanted to mention a couple things as we kick the week off.

1) We are not opposed to the Faith Bible Church, or their right to redevelop the site. However, to redevelop the site, the applicant does NOT need major zoning variances. It's a matter of scale. There is not enough parking to support the development in its current form. Granting major zoning variances to increase the degree of non-conformity that leads to overcrowding the site is not prudent.

2) Hello there. Thanks for paying attention and getting involved in the discussion. Below you will find some of the metrics for for the last 30 days. Mohegan Lake had a respectable 28 unique visits with an average of 4 minutes, 40 seconds spent on the site 3.36 pagers per visit. However, Somers wins the the paying attention prize with an average time of 29 mins, 28 secs, with 13 page views per visit; impressive. Leave your name in the comments and I'll email you a gift certificate to Auggie's Prime Cut.
