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.

MLID Lake Day Planning Meeting

All seven of the beaches around Mohegan Lake are preparing for our annual Lake Day celebration on Sunday July 12th, 2015 (raid date is the 19th).  Detailed schedule of events with maps of beaches.  Expect a regatta, turtles, food, drink, potluck and a movie, floating lanterns launched at sundown, and much, much more!  Meeting will be at the Calvary Church at 99 Baron de Hirsch road at 7pm next Thursday the 28th.  Be there and help us make this the most successful Lake Day to date. 

P.S.  Did anyone see the pink flamingos on the abandoned boat that emerged after the thatw at the top of the lake?  What a joyous sighting. Sadly, they were here for less than 18 hours and whoever took them just dragged the boat closer to shore.  Pretty, pretty lame. 

The Most Dangerous Game

And...we're back from an extended silence.  Lots of things to catch up on, including our lawsuit against the Yorktown Zoning Board of Appeals which is currently wending through the 2nd Appellate Division in Brooklyn. 

But first, we got this alert from LoHud last night about a Mohegan Lake man that shot a crossbow at a Mohegan Park employee (seems he didn't like staying there).  Stay alert out there, kids.
