Electronic billboards receive approval in Peabody


“It’s like pushing a button on the remote control,” Gamache said. “I’m highly in favor of it.”

The second sign, from Total Outdoor Corp. drew a complaint from resident Barry Poretsky of Heatherwood Lane, who said it will be too tall.

In response, Gamache noted there is a height restriction. He also quoted another resident who had contacted him, and who “really believes this is not going to be detrimental to the neighborhood.”

The city’s new billboard zoning is designed to limit the signs to Route 1 and Interstate 95. Peabody is considered a prime location by billboard companies, because so many highways go through it.
