Ravena village officials are against the proposed Pilgrim Pipeline

Bryan Rowzee in the Ravena News-Herald reports that Ravena village officials unanimously issued a resolution urging state officials to not allow the Pilgrim Pipeline to be built. The two proposed parallel pipelines would run from Albany, NY to Linden, NJ. One pipeline would transport crude oil south while the other pipeline would carry refined products north, passing through Ravena, and largely alongside Interstate 87. The resolution from Ravena village officials called on "the New York State Thruway Authority to reject use of its right-of-way for the purpose of transporting oil or gas by pipeline." “We just don't see a benefit in any way, shape or form to having this pipeline run through the middle of our community," said Ravena Mayor William Misuraca.
