Boston Landmarks Commission Accepted the Landmark Petition for Further Study on the Citgo Sign

Thanks to your support of our online petition to save Boston’s Citgo sign, we crossed the first hurdle towards designating the sign an official Boston Landmark. On Tuesday night, the Boston Landmarks Commission unanimously voted to accept the Landmark Petition for further study on the sign. I was proud to announce enthusiastic support, both locally and globally, and how more than 5,000 people contributed their signature, voicing the value and stature of the sign in Boston and beyond. This is just the first steps to designating the sign an official Boston Landmark. Within a few months, another vote by the Landmarks Commission is required, and the Mayor and City Council will need to approve official designation. Your continued support is essential to this process. Follow us on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram for updates. The Citgo sign is one of many significant sites around the city that require attention, care, and your support. If you too feel that development in Boston should be balanced with protection for historic, irreplaceable places and buildings for future generations to know and appreciate, please get to know the Alliance and our work through this video: And let us know your favorite Boston sites with the hashtag #LookUpBoston. From the Citgo Sign and the Northern Avenue Bridge to Fenway Park (which the Alliance was instrumental in protecting years ago), we hope you agree with us that the historic fabric of Boston is a critical part of our identity. I hope you can support our work by clicking here: Even a gift of $20 will help fund advocacy efforts, from petitions like this one, to our constant work with city officials to protect what makes Boston special...a membership gift of $60 or more will bring you regular updates on these projects and others.
