Historic district safe from billboard

After discussions with Mayor Jasiel Correia II, the Preservation Society of Fall River is happy to confirm that the Mayor’s Office is no longer pursuing digital billboards at two of the previously proposed locations – South Main/Market Streets in the city’s downtown historic district and the Water Department property off Route 24 near the historic waterworks building.

The issue was previously tabled by the City Council Committee on Health and Environment at its April 6 meeting where the Preservation Society voiced concerns over the impact a digital billboard would have on the historic core of Fall River.

During a meeting with members of the Preservation Society’s Board of Directors to discuss historic preservation issues in Fall River, Mayor Correia stated the decision and said that other locations for digital billboards were being explored.

The Preservation Society applauds this decision, which will preserve the historic skyline of Fall River and the structures that make it up.
