Cubs plan $300M in Wrigley Field renovation

The Cubs’ plans to renovate Wrigley Field could include a new deal for rooftop owners.

The Ricketts family has offered to pay $300-million to fix up the ballpark.

But they want the city to ease landmark rules, so they could put up more advertising.

Those signs could obstruct the view from the roof-tops behind the bleachers.

That means the Ricketts family will have to negotiate with roof-top owners, who have a 20-year contract with the team.

One option would be to put the signs on those buildings and share the revenue.
