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.

Silly Geese

We are hoping the Court will make a decision on our article 78 petition in the next 60 to 90 days.  It's really hard to predict as the lead time varies from judge to judge, depending on case-load and other factors.

There are several other things we can discuss to pass the time such as the State Land Corp. rezone, the Costco site and the "Super" Walmart.  There will be a lot on that in the near future.  In the meantime, enjoy this video of baby geese walking down Mohegan Ave.  I'm going to use this post to propose the speed bumps that near the intersection of Scofield Road and Mohegan Ave be extended all the way up Mohegan to Sagamore Trail.  People actually walk on this sidewalk-less street while some people drive at break-neck speeds.  The speed bumps are very effective, in my personal experience.

The Silly Geese are a hoot, or a honk, maybe-- thanks for the video and thanks for all your good work.

The speed bump idea is terrific- I love to walk, and would like to hike back and forth to CVS to buy the morning paper, but I'm scared of the speeding cars on the road- so I drive instead of walk.

It is quite scary to walk there. When we walk home from the MHPOA beach, we all use powerful flashlights and carry a lantern too.

The other day we we're in are yard and someone literally screeched their tires around the Mohegan/Sagamore intersection and my wife yelled at them to slow down. Man, we're getting old. I told her she needs to shake her fist when she yells next time. Much more effective;)
