The Chicago Cubs’ plan to renovate Wrigley Field received approval on several aspects today from the Chicago Landmarks Commission, but not on the controversial jumbotron screen in left field or the advertising sign in right field.
Meeting in the council chamber at City Hall, the commission voted to approve 45,000 square feet of new or existing signs around the ball park.
However, as to the big signs in left and right field, the landmark commission put-off a vote until next month.
Also, Alderman Tom Tunney who represents the area now says the Cubs should forget about their idea to extend the right and left field walls due to public safety concerns.
Tunney added that for most of the year, Wrigley field is a residential community and that sidewalk width is a public safety concern.
