Plan Commission endorses Wrigley Field rehab plan
Cubs Chairman Tom Ricketts took a major step today toward winning city approval for his $500 million plan to renovate Wrigley Field and transform the surrounding area in the process.
The Chicago Plan Commission unanimously endorsed the proposal, sending it to the City Council, which is expected to give the final thumbs-up, especially after local Ald. Thomas Tunney, 44th, told commissioners he backs the plan.
Although he continued to discuss with the Cubs and Mayor Rahm Emanuel his opposition to a pedestrian bridge the Cubs want to put up over Clark Street, he said other concerns have been addressed.
