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.

Thank You, Mohegan Lake

We ended up with 55 signatories to the petition. It's important to note that all of those came within a 5 minute walk of the site and that several people contributed letters to the board. 3 "interested parties" even submitted notarized letters opposing 3 of the 5 variances. I've missed a lot of sleep collecting signatures and preparing my response to the the church's attorney's response to my initial submission. It clocks in at 4, 444 words over 9 pages with an additional 12 pages of exhibits (GIS maps and lots of other fun stuff).

Now we wait until 10/27/2011 when the Zoning Board of Appeals votes.

Thanks, friends.
