Proposed Downtown Billboard Tabled For Now

The City Council’s Committee on Health and Environmental Affairs tabled the Correia Administration’s proposal to lease city land for the construction of a digital billboard on South Main and Market streets at its April 6 meeting.

The Preservation Society sent a position statement opposing the proposed downtown billboard to the City Council ahead of the meeting and a member of the Board of Directors attended the meeting to voice the PSFR’s concerns.

The Correia Administration is currently appealing the state’s decision to reject two other proposed billboard locations — one on Water Department property along Route 24 near the historic pumping station and another on Brayton Avenue near the I-195 ramp.
