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.

Lake Day

Sunday, July 17, 2011 is Lake Day--sponsored by the Mohegan Lake Improvement District. There are various activities at several beaches. Highlights include, a demonstration of the weed harvester (have you seen it? It's very cool), talks about the health of the lake, volleyball, and a water taxi. Take a look at one of the various posters up around the lake, as seen below. You can click on and enlarge the image below and should be able to probably read most of it.

My contribution to Lake Day will be to raise awareness about snapping turtles. I spotted one in my backyard about a month ago with a shell about 2 feet long (apparently they get much bigger). Below you will find a very short film on how one can safely move a snapping turtle, in case you find one on Mohegan Ave, or in another dangerous situation.
