COMMUNITY RELATIONS: Tunney said that he is "resigned to a naming rights deal" for Wrigley Field, but he "takes a dim view of changes that would affect the surrounding neighborhood." The Chicago City Council in '04 made Wrigley an official landmark, a designation that "requires special permission for proposed alterations." Tunney said Cubs officials now "want to get out of the landmark (designation), period." Tunney added that the team wants to "increase the density of the proposed commercial project." Cubs VP/Community Affairs Mike Lufrano: "There are a lot of ideas being tossed around while the ownership of the team and stadium are being discussed, but everything we have done here at Wrigley Field of late has been done in a way that is sensitive to the community" (CHICAGO TRIBUNE, 2/28).
