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.

How Sweet It Is

We've been enjoying some fine times on the lake.  Hockey, fishing, big long skates to the island house.  And nature's Zamboni came through to boot.

Be careful out there boys and girls.

Mohegan Lake Is Singing

Do you hear it?

Nearly five years of living on the lake's edge, it's hard to not to hear it and to love it.  As the lake freezes, it makes crazy, ray-gun-type noises.  Alien.  I think it's due to the cracking of the ice.  It's a wildly fluid membrane structure, ultimately, no?

We should all give a big-up to mother nature for her natural Zamboni effect.

At any rate, I stomped through the ice at the edge and we have 2-3 inches.  This amazing cold we're getting should assure us at least a safe 4" of clean, clear ice by Saturday.  To skate on!  Will pull out the auger on Saturday morning.

Grab Your Auger, Ice Skates, and Fishing Poles


Yes, it is on.  The lord has truly blessed us; just be careful out there, because god has plans. 

I predict we have 4 inches of clean, clear ice by next Saturday.  Me and the girls just got our blades sharpened at Bear Mountain after Thanksgiving.
