The Chicago Commission on Landmarks meets today to begin reviewing the Cubs’ plan to renovate Wrigley Field,  but already Wrigleyville’s alderman wants changes in the plan.

Alderman Tom Tunney sent a letter to the Cubs’ owners Wednesday, demanding that new giant signs in left and right field be one-third smaller than what the team is proposing.

Tunney also wants the Cubs to eliminate a plan for a pedestrian bridge over Clark St. between the ballpark and a new hotel; and he wants the hotel entrance to be on Addison or Clark, not on a residential street, as it would be under the current proposal.

  • Tom Tunney Sucks

    Who was that idiot that said the fans on the rooftops are part of the tradition. ten years out of the nearly 100 the cubs have been in Wrigley does not make a tradition. The tradition was people living there and going up on their own roof to watch a game.

    I hope the Cubs move and screws that whole neighborhood who's sole existence as a sought after place to live is predicated on the Cubs being there.
