Total Outdoor Corp. has agreed to remove the 92-foot billboard on Lowell Street that has been part of a lengthy legal battle between the city and the company.
The Salem News reported that the company will withdraw its latest court appeal. Total Outdoor Corp. plans to move the 92-foot pole behind the Holiday Inn on Route 1 and will be pointed toward Route 128, reported The Salem News.
Total Outdoor Corp. erected the 92-foot billboard next to Subway on Lowell Street last year. There has been a back-and-forth legal battle for two years between the city and company.
The City Council believed the billboard’s height was not appropriate for Lowell Street. Nearby residents have also spoken out about the billboard.
