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.

They're Coming for The Holland Club!

It was only a matter of time.  I'm just surprised they literally just want to dump on us up here in Mohegan Lake.

  A message from MLID president Ken Belfer:

I was informed tonight after the Town Board meeting that the widening of Route 202 is supposed to begin in April, and the Town has been offered tens of thousands of yards of clean fill that will be excavated.  Supervisor Grace informed me that they would like to have it all brought to the Holland Club property.  His vision was that all the Town would have to do is cut down the trees in a portion of the property, and they would get the fill brought over and graded for free.  He felt it would clean up the property and create two town ballfields at the same time.  He said one would be at the lake level, and there would be an open grassy area leading up to the lake with a lake view.  The other would be at the top.  I was told that this plan would be presented at the Rec Board meeting on the 14th of March, and that the Town had to move fast to take advantage of this offer.  He wanted lake residents to know about this, and to come out to the Rec Board meeting to hear about it and give input. 
I wanted to get the word out about this right away, because I know there will be very strong feelings about this. 
And please, don't shoot the messenger . . . .
