BOSTON (WBZ-AM) -- After an agreement between Citgo and Related Beal, the iconic Citgo sign that stands over Kenmore Square near Fenway Park will remain--at least for another 30 years.

The Boston Landmark Commission had voted to make the sign an official landmark, but that motion was vetoed by Mayor Marty Walsh in light of this new agreement. The announcement was made in a press release from the city on behalf of Mayor Walsh, Citgo, Beal, and Boston University.

"We are pleased to share that we have reached a long-term resolution that will preserve the Citgo sign and allow for it to remain in place in Kenmore Square for years to come, recognizing the significance that this sing has on our landscape in Boston, while balancing the opportunity for our horizons to continue evolving in future years," the statement read.
