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.

Thought Of The Day: Zoning Code Section 300-224(e)

Lake Mohegan (§ 300-224 — § 300-228) 

"It is a finding that the continued unregulated granting of lake access will significantly impact the lake environment and adversely impact the sensitive ecology of Lake Mohegan as well as the character of the Lake Mohegan neighborhood. Accordingly, the purpose of this article is to prevent any person from undertaking any new land use, development and/or subdivision of land that involves any shoreline of Lake Mohegan, except in compliance with the shoreline use and development restrictions outlined below..."
