Pivotal vote today on Wrigley Field renovation
The Chicago Plan Commission takes a critical vote today on the Wrigley Field renovation plan.
The Chicago City Council typically approves any plan that clears the Plan Commission.
Some of the ballpark’s neighbors gathered Wednesday evening to ask the city to take more time to review the entire Wrigleyville development plan.
They oppose the Cubs’ plan to add signs and build a pedestrian bridge over Clark Street; they also want the Cubs to change their plans for a new hotel.
Alderman Tom Tunney is threatening to vote “no” on the Wrigleyville redevelopment unless big changes are made.
But it’s unclear at this point whether Tunney’s opposition will be enough to derail or delay the project.
