Cubs Win Approval For Wrigley Renovations, No Longer Concerned About Rooftop Owners
Published July 11, 2014
CUBS READY FOR ROOFTOP OWNERS: In Chicago, Hopkins & Sachdev in a front-page piece note the rooftop owners' contention is that the approved signs "violate their contract with the club" and have the potential to "kill their business." Cubs President of Business Operations Crane Kenney on Thursday said that the team "is no longer concerned with assurances from rooftop owners that they won't sue." He added, "In short, we are ready to go." Hopkins & Sachdev note despite testimony "from more than a dozen people, including 20 minutes by an attorney representing rooftop owners, the commission's vote came quickly and without discussion among the panel." Much of the construction "is expected to begin after this season." Thursday's decision "gives the team a clear advantage" (CHICAGO TRIBUNE, 7/11).
