In early September, state highway officials had sent a letter to Steve Luciani, who has been conceiving and setting up the display for about 20 years, telling him the display needed to be removed because it violated state highway protocol.
The state originally believed the display was on state property, since Route 28 is a state highway.
But in investigating the issue, it turns out the land is actually on town property, meaning the display can stay.
“I didn’t really realize that those signs and displays meant so much to people,” Luciani said. “The more I hear from people it just makes me feel really good. I appreciate all the support that everybody has given me.”
Moving forward, Luciani will manage the corner as an adopt-a-spot.
