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 Sporting Club Clean Up

Remember the still open DEC violation for the Holland Sporting Club/Rock Hill? It looks like the town is finally footing the bill to complete the clean up.  Welcome news.  It sure took much longer--and at a greater cost to taxpayers--than originally advertised, but hopefully it gets done right now.  It's such a beautiful property.

World Series Champ Visits GW

George Washington Elementary had a surprise guest today, Joe Panik of the San Francisco Giants.  He attended school there for a few years and played in the Shrub Oak Athletic Club while in the area. 

It's exciting to see that Mohegan Lake produces such amazing athletes. Remember Melissa Gonzales? I think it's the water.

Important Mohegan Highlands Information

  1.  We are going Christmas Caroling this Saturday, December 6.  5-6 is cocktails and recital, caroling from 6-8.  BYOB (or flask) and an appetizer; if you have children, ration appropriately.  Open to all Mohegan Highland Property Owners Association members and their guests, but please do rsvp to
  2. Are you a MHPOA home owner (not sure, email me--see above) and Friends with MHPOA on Facebook?  No?  Oh, you should be, it's just getting fired up and you get to see cool pictures of things like our neighborhood fox (see below).  She lives with her cub (?) just below the MHPOA beach.  How cool is that?  Foxes, I've heard, are one of the greatest judges of neighborhoods.

From the MLID president:

We will be meeting this Thursday December 4 at 7:30 P.M. at the Calvary Chapel at 99 Baron de Hirsch Road in Crompond.   We need to make decisions about how we will be chemically treating the lake next summer to keep it swimmable.
