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.

A New Year

Above: A reader's comment on Jack Kahn's letter to the ZBA.

Gentle reader:

The new year brings us many new and exciting opportunities to present our concerns with the proposed new development heard with the town.  It's important that we leave both verbal and written comments on the public record regarding all of the concerns we have; from parking to environmental; from the quality of life considerations to the detrimental impact on the character of the neighborhood and its unique steep slopes.  Did I mention parking concerns?

Mr. Strachan brings up some interesting points.  Additionally, it is important to note that Shrub Oak Lake Estates (SOLE) still retains ownership of the wetland parking area via permanent easement recorded in the deed conveyed to Faith Bible Church.  I'm to lazy to expound on it in this post, but it's true. 

The deadline for filing an article 78 petition challenging the Yorktown Zoning Board of Appeals' decision approval of the zoning variances are fast approaching.  If legal action is taken, the required documents will most likely be filed this week.
