the city of Kingston Common Council voted 8-0 last week to adopt a memorializing resolution opposing the Pilgrim Pipeline proposal. The proposed 178-mile Pilgrim Pipeline would move Bakken crude from Albany to Linden, NJ, through Albany, Greene, and Ulster counties, and send refined crude back to Albany, largely along the I-87 corridor. In Greene County, the proposed project veers east of Route 9W west of Sleepy Hollow Lake in Athens, and then back near the interstate around Leeds-Athens Road. After Catskill, the pipeline veers west of the interstate briefly around Cauterskill Road. So far, Rosendale, New Paltz, Woodstock, and Rhinebeck have also passed measures opposing the pipeline.
