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.

And...We're Off

Hi Mohegan Lake,

So the Lake is now sufficiently frozen across about 75% of its 110 acres to skate.  I took depth readings of about 2-7/8" on the edge to nearly  4" in the middle (the ice extends above the water line in the pic below).  New York State DEC used to say 2" of clean clear ice is good for adults; but they changed that to 4".    The extreme edge is dicey.  Oh, and there are a few death traps like the giant hole between SOLE and FBC.  Know what you're doing if you go out there. thick.

 How Pretty is that?

 Awwww, freshies!
And the obligatory first skate video.  Please come join us, but again, do so at your own risk.
