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.

I Always Feel Like, Somebody's Watchin' Me

Just kidding, I know people are watching me.  Not to many, but there are some surprises.  For example, Westport, CT wins the month with an average visit duration over 17 mins.  Do you know which one of the dots below is Westport? First person to answer correctly in the comment section below wins breakfast for two at JV Hot Bagel II on East Main. Of all the metrics you see, I'd ask that you pay particular attention to the "Avg. Visit Duration" column.

On to New York observers, of me.

So, in summary, things are happening in Mohegan Lake.  Pay attention.

Sad News From MLID

Faith Bible Church Planning Hearing Tomorrow, 3/10/14

We here at would like you to know that the subject Yorktown Planning Board application that we've been following will have a public hearing held around 7ish at town hall TOMORROW.  Please don't bother to attend the hearing on 3/10/14.  If you can't watch it on TV when it airs live on the municipal channel, then DVR it.  It's gonna be a short discussion because the application has a glaring defect all of the highfalutin lawyers representing the church and the town missed (oR willfully overlooked). [editor's note: If I were the church, I would sue my design and legal team for sucking at their jobs incompetence.]

Anyhoo, it should be worthy of the space on your DVR and will likely be adjourned to a later date.  Your written and oral support of the opposition to the proposed out-sized development is on the record and to repeat it would be repetitive and redundant and repetitive.   

I'm serving my reply to the Church's attorney's merit-based response to my article 78 petition.  Can you believe that Yorktown failed to serve a timely reply and was refused by the pro se petitioner [bat-shit crazy man off the street who has no law degree but can meet a deadline?].  It was received 4 days late and about $3.50 short.  Your tax dollars at work, people.

In summary, watch the Planning Board meeting tomorrow on TV, from the comfort of your couch.  I'll take this one for the team.
