A Threat to the Lake
Some within our community may have come across internet advertisements for a business which offers public access to Yankee Lake. The YLPA Board of Directors is aware of this and share the concerns of members of our community that our peaceful private lake is being threatened.
Our rules and regulations state that the “Use of the Lake/YLPA property by clubs, associations, businesses, or other organizations, unless pre-approved by the YLPA Board of Directors, is prohibited.” Moreover, the activities being advertised are in violation of town zoning ordinances for the Neighborhood Residential zone. The Town of Mamakating is aware of the plans of this property owner and has taken action to ensure compliance with all zoning ordinances. We appreciate the prompt and vigorous response by the Town Code Enforcement Officer to uphold the zoning regulations.
The Board of Directors promptly notified the property owner of the violation of our rules and regulations, which prompted a meeting with the property owner to discuss the situation and our concerns. We have given the property owner the opportunity to correct the violations of our rules and regulations and we are awaiting compliance.
Please be assured that the Board of Directors will take all actions available to us under the law to protect our Lake and keep it the private, peaceful, and serene place which drew us all to Yankee Lake.
