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.

Hot Fun In The Summertime

As we approach the dog days of summer, I wanted to offer a gentle reminder that next Thursday, August 4th, 2011 is last day Cablevision channel 20 will be re-playing the last Zoning Board of Appeals hearing for FBC's application. It lasts three hours, so make some popcorn.

I will be making relatively frequent posts on the run up to August 11th. That's the date of the next ZBA hearing on the application. It's still open for public comment. If you can't make it, it is simulcast on channel 20 as well.

Here's a quick clip of my opening remarks from the 6/23/2011 hearing. It's starts out a bit contentious, but--honestly--both the board and members of both interested parties conducted themselves civilly.

We welcome the church's expansion; the debate is about what scale is appropriate.

Stay cool.
