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.

Mohegan Highlands Property Owners Association (MHPOA), We've Got a Problem

Nothing we can't overcome, but there are dock issues.  Biggest issue is probably the T-shaped, big wooden dock.  The good ice we had this year was bad to the wood.  The floating dock was ripped off it's anchors, but seems to be intact.  There's the another, small T-shaped dock that I think we should aim to rehabilitate.  Oh, and there's a random floating dock that ended up in the turtle cove; we should advertise a found dock and if no one claims it, perhaps we float out in the middle of the lake for longer swims? Point being, we're hoping we can do this in house and not have to go out to bid (town requires 3) to make these repairs.

Below are some reconnaissance photos I took this weekend.  We have beach clean up/repair days scheduled for April 20th and 27th.  We're actually going to be looking into rehabilitating the tennis courts (not as tennis courts cause it's so expensive) and the field up the hill.

You can see that header beam is cracked just to the left of the center float.  The whole thing is dipping there.  I think we have to detach that section of the "T", float it to shore, repair and re-float/re-attach.
You can see where the ice pushed it into the shore and turned over 45 degrees; it's still anchored with chains--firmly.

Our ghost dock into turtle cove.

The decking looks to be in decent shape.

Need to advertise this to the other home owners associations.  If it goes unclaimed, we can certainly put it to use.

Yum.  No blue-green algae in sight.
