Wrigley Field renovation plan changed
The latest changes to the Wrigley Field renovation plans will affect parking on Sheffield Avenue.
The Chicago Landmarks Commission approved a plan that would push back the right field wall even further.
The original plan was seven feet, but now it will be pushed back 15 feet.
Sheffield will have to be narrowed, and some parking will be eliminated.
The Cubs say this would minimize how much their new 650-square-foot see-through billboard above right field will block rooftop views.
Cubs ownership say they won’t start the renovation until rooftop owners promise not to sue them.
The amended renovation plans still have to go back to the Plan Commission and City Council for approval.
