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.

Holland Club Site Visit

There will be a site visit to review the condition of the remedial work prompted by the NYSDEC Notice of Violation, general discussion of the property and fellowship.  For those interested in attending, it will begin at 11am on Saturday, 4/6/2013 unitl 11:30ish.  Hope to see you there.  If you haven't been to the site, or haven't been recently, I highly recommend you take a look-see.  It's a great property. We've had an eagle and osprey sightings on the lake (they were both fishing).  There are at least 3 great blue heron and about 100 or so Merganser ducks chilling in the lake for another couple weeks.

Please note that the Town Board will be discussing the park proposal approved by the Recreation Commission on Tuesday night at the Town Board.  You should attend this meeting if you have an interest in the future of the Holland Club. 
They literally turned the Holland Club into a dump, without a permit.   That's the gist of the violation.  There's been some funny semantic games, contradictions and outright opacity from the board regarding this issue.
