As expected, the City Council approved recent changes to the Wrigley Field renovation plan, which now includes more flexibility when scheduling night games, an arch over Clark Street and an outfield wall relocated further onto Waveland and Sheffield Avenues.
"The Cubs need to start work as soon as possible," said Ald. Tom Tunney, who lauded the the plan for spurring economic development.
This is the second time the renovation plan has passed through the municipal gauntlet, so the Cubs should have all the official approvals they need to begin renovating Wrigley.
There is, of course, one problem: the rooftops.
Before construction can begin, the Cubs want assurances from the rooftop owners that they will not sue to halt the project. According to Tom Ricketts, the two sides have yet to reach a resolution.
Tunney once opposed the renovation plan, enabling the rooftops to resist, but now that he supports the project, will Ald. Frankenstein be able to kill the monster he created?Comments
