The Select Board will have a chance to decide whether neon is too much for Milton as the new tenant at 502 Granite Ave. has proposed the reuse of the rooftop sign used previously when the building housed Sleepy’s and Mattress Firm.

The town’s Sign Bylaw Review Committee voted 4 to 2 on April 29 not to support the application, with those opposed saying that this was not the type of sign that the town finds desirable, but the owner of the business, Allison Barnes, and building owner Bob Falconi of Falconi Properties, Inc. “absolutely” plan to appeal the decision to the Select Board, according to their attorney, Ned Corcoran.

“This sign is really critical to any business in this location,” Corcoran said.

The business, called Rebuilt Fitness, is a gym with a new philosophy that promotes “anti-aging,” according to Barnes.
