Wrigley Field To Get Landmark Commission Approval For Some Elements Of Upgrade Plans
Published June 27, 2013
MEETING IN THE MIDDLE: In Chicago, Fran Spielman reports the Landmark Commission will "hold off on outfield signs, but give the Cubs the go-ahead Thursday to extend outward the right- and left-field walls of Wrigley Field, build a new western entrance, remodel the dug-out and build a new Captain Morgan Club." Sources said that the decision to "postpone until a regularly-scheduled July 11 meeting a vote on the two most controversial elements of the Wrigley project -- a 6,000 sq.ft. video scoreboard in left-field and a 1,000 sq.ft. see-through sign in right -- is a concession" to Tunney. The delay "gives him two more weeks to try and wring those concessions" out of the Cubs, provided Emanuel "stands behind him" (CHICAGO SUN-TIMES, 6/27).
