Pressure is building on Mayor Rahm Emanuel to broker a deal that will permit the renovation of Wrigley Field.
The Ricketts family owns the Cubs and the ballpark. It wants permission to add billboards, add night games and hold street fairs around the park.
In return the family is offering to pay the full cost of renovation instead of asking for taxpayer money.
Critics don’t want anything that might disturb the neighborhood or block the view of the field from neighboring rooftops.
Some of the rooftop club owners will put forth their own renovation plan Friday.
