Cubs Officials Meet With Local Residents To Hear Traffic, Parking Concerns

LEAVING WRIGLEY? In Chicago, Phil Rosenthal writes of the Cubs potentially considering leaving Wrigley Field to build a new stadium in the suburb of Rosemont, Ill., "The history and aesthetics of a bygone era give Wrigley its value and make it worth preserving. They bind it to the team, its resolutely loyal fans and its neighborhood." That is why it "makes no sense for the Cubs to leave Wrigleyville for suburban Rosemont or anywhere else." Rosenthal: "The Rosemont feint, dangerous as it might be, would have more credibility if [Cubs Owner] the Ricketts family was openly exploring a variety of alternative sites." But they "aren't actively floating ideas such as a development on Chicago's West Side that could also include commercial and residential opportunities" (CHICAGO TRIBUNE, 3/27).
