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.

"Under Penalty of Perjury"

"[P]ast supervisor and high-profile Yorktown attorney Al Cappellini" responded to our written submissions with some antiquated language.  He wrote that "Albert A. Cappellini, under penalty of perjury affirms as follows:"... Click on the image below to examine the first page of Mr Cappellini's affirmation.  It's kind of funny, because--in the "following" he goes on to perjure himself several times [editors note: I'm laughing out loud, or as the kids these days would write "lol"].

Please click on the image below to see one such instance.  

Albert A. Cappellini writes that "[t]he Code requires that a house of worship have one parking space for four pews" when--in fact--the Code requires one parking space per 4 pew seats.  

At this point, it is important to note that Mr. Cappellini neglects to note that the engineer employed by the developer has gone on the record that the absolute best ratio of parking spaces per pew seat they can provide is 2.7(the lower the ratio, the more crowded the parking).  But that's another an issue. That's an issue that will be addressed in the special permit process. 

I hereby do declare, under penalty of one bazillion tickles--so many tickles that I cannot breath and collapse in a pool of laughter so deep I never recover--Albert A. Cappellini perjured himself in paragraph immediatlely following his affirmation that his statements would be accurate.

May the enforcement body of Yorktown overlook this obvious instance of perjury for such a well respected fixture of our community.
