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.

Inspiring Ice Conditions

 The last couple days after that rain and deep freeze have created a veritable sheet of glass on Mohegan Lake.  I've been sneaking out of work early (though working remotely), just to catch a quick skate in the evening.  Even got to do some moonlight skating tonight.  Expecting the precipitation event set to occur this weekend mild enough to get a few miles in this weekend. 

Hope to see you out on the 105 acre ice rink that helps define our community.

2/21/12: the huge trees you see here are on the undevelopable land the developer "traded" to Yorktown to develop the parcel that extends to Route 6.  I was surprised to learn how recently much of this area was still woodland.  In summary, we have some really big trees around here. 

Left to right: the Ansonia Lodge, condos, daycare center. Foreground: the most amazing ice Mohegan Lake has seen since December 2010.

Video below of a little moonlight skating this evening; it's too dark to appreciate how fast the ice is. Trust me though.
