There is an ongoing battle regarding the Citgo sign in Boston. People argue that it should be taken down because it prohibits development in the area. Others say that the sign is recognized as a symbol of our city and should remain untouched.

According to WCVB, The Boston Landmark Commission granted the Citgo sign official landmark status. This protects the sign from any development that would relocate the sign or block it's view.

The city has 45 days to veto this decision but I hope they don't! Boston's skyline simply wouldn't be the same without the Citgo sign.
