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.

Good Feeling

I had a feeling this morning to inquire about any new material regarding Faith Bible Church's planning board application.  Sure enough, there were a couple new items in the file, one of great interest. I'm including the entire document below.  There's a lot of questions raised by Jacobs (the town traffic consultant reviewing the applicant FBC's  engineer).  I'll certainly review it in detail and opine, but here's an interesting tidbit:

It would seem that John Collins Engineers (FBC's paid traffic consultant; why do I mention that? FBC had the option to hire Jacobs directly and instead chose to engage John Collins Engineers P.C., at an additional cost; curious move from a financial standpoint) used a ratio of nearly 1/2 the proscribed code standard [.31 instead of .61].  Rookie move?  Unlikely since they've been around a long time and have a great reputation.  I'm interested to see the explanation.   Stay tuned.
