Wrigley renovation faces next-to-last hurdle

Chicago’s City Council Zoning Committee will get an earful from Wrigleyville residents today when it considers the Cubs’ plan to renovate Wrigley Field.

Alderman Tom Tunney has dropped his opposition to the Cubs’ plans; but he wants assurances that the owners will address some of his concerns about their changes to the ballpark and the surrounding neighborhood.

Neighbors want the Cubs to change their plan to have a new hotel open out onto a residential street.

They also want the club to drop its plan for a pedestrian bridge between the hotel and the ballpark.

Assuming the Zoning Committee endorses the Wrigley renovation plan, the full City Council could give it final approval Wednesday.
