Wrigley Field plan poised for final approval

This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated. Please look at the time stamp on the story to see when it was last updated.

The Chicago City Council is expected to approve the renovation of Wrigley Field today.

The plan includes a new Jumbotron screen in left field and a new see-through billboard in right field.

It includes a new hotel across Clark St. with its main entrance on either Clark or Addison instead of a residential street; but it no longer includes a new pedestrian footbridge outside the park, or an extension of the right field bleachers over Sheffield Ave.

Those enhancements must be approved later.

The Cubs’ owners added,  “We also need to resolve all outstanding issues with the rooftops, and amend the night game ordinance, so as not to conflict with major league baseball’s national television contract.”
