The Chicago Cubs has a new free parking option for fans, but not everyone is happy about that.

Cubs officials and a local alderman felt the wrath of a community that felt ignored in the planning process.

The new remote lot is at 3900 N. Rockwell — that’s two miles west of Wrigley Field.

It has 1,000 parking spaces available for fans going to night and weekend Cubs games.

Free shuttle bus rides will take them to the game and back.

But the residents who live around it pushed serious concerns about traffic, noise and safety.

They were also irrtated about the limited access to the new lot off Irving Park Road.

Revere Park is also right there and its often packed during community and little league games.

47th Ward Alderman Ameya Pawar and the Cubs are assuring residents that they’ll address issues caused by the lot as they happen.
