City: Cubs won’t have to pay extra taxes for Wrigley expansion
The City of Chicago says the Chicago Cubs won’t have to pay any extra city taxes for the space it takes to expand Wrigley Field.
A lane of traffic on Waveland Avenue will be wiped out.
And a sidewalk on Sheffield will disappear when the right field wall is extended by ten feet.
The City Council’s original approval of Wrigley renovation included a plan to appraise the land and decide how much to levy in new taxes.
Wednesday, the city said there will be no appraisal, and no additional taxes.C
