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.

Phoenix House Is On The Market

If you don't know what that is, it's got the campanile-type tower (plus much more structure) on top of the ridge overlooking Mohegan Lake and the Taconic State Parkway; you've seen it. It was, effectively a juvenile detention center.  It's huge and on the market and being marketed by Newmark Gubb Knight Frank, a reputable firm.  I'm not going to speculate what goes in there, but there's a lot of possibilities.  Let's just say, I'm glad I don't live on Stony Street.  Juvenile delinquents locked up don't drive cars, unless they bust out and steal one.  That's a very narrow road and with the square footage available, the occupant load could be enormous. 

The 140-acre Westchester County campus includes a five-story main building with a 270,000-square-foot former seminary, dormitories, classrooms, a library, large meeting rooms, a commercial kitchen and offices.
