The City of Kingston and Ulster County provide maintenance as needed on trail/off-road sections of the Kingston Greenline system in their respective jurisdictions. The on-road sections of the Kingston Greenline are already incorporated into regular street maintenance conducted by the City of Kingston Department of Public Works.
In 2018, the Kingston Land Trust produced a Management Plan Framework for the Kingston Greenline with funding from from the New York State Conservation Partnership Program (NYSCPP) and New York’s Environmental Protection Fund. The NYSCPP is administered by the Land Trust Alliance, in coordination with the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation. The Kingston Land Trust is currently working with the City of Kingston to develop a Management Plan for the Kingston Point Rail Trail using the Management Plan Framework as a foundation.
Trail Rangers, a volunteer group organized by the Kingston Land Trust, conducts monthly trail monitoring walks on the trail portions of the Greenline to identify maintenance concerns and report them to the appropriate municipality. Based on observations from trail monitoring, the Kingston Land Trust organizes volunteer clean up events to address litter and invasive plant species.
