Kyle Adams reports in The Daily Mail residents of Kaaterskill and Woodstock avenues in Palenville petitioned the Catskill Town Board Mon., July 1, to crack down on what they called “unruly” activity at the Kaaterskill Creek Bridge swimming hole. A petition was presented with 19 signatures demanding officials take action to enforce the town’s noise ordinance, and littering and parking laws. One resident said the location has "become a hang-out and that chases away people who would otherwise enjoy the beauty, take a swim. We’ve put up with it for 25 years, but in the last 10 it’s gotten really worse.” Town board member Gary Carlson pointed out people are congregating in Palenville because other swimming holes are now privately owned and closed down.
