The iconic Rialto Theatre Sign in South Pasadena that was damaged during last year's Windpocalypse will be staying up.

The South Pasadena Chamber of Commerce sent out a release today posted on Patch that announced there was a plan to keep the sign up. Landmark Theater, the company that owns the shuttered property on the National Register of Historic Places, came up with the plan. Once the city approves Landmark's plan, the company will hire a contractor.

Earlier this month the city deemed it a safety hazard after police noticed it swaying precariously in the breeze.
