Cubs Will Not Have To Give Taxpayers More During Wrigley Project

Chicago city officials yesterday said that the Cubs "will not be required to compensate Chicago taxpayers" for use of public streets and sidewalks during the Wrigley Field renovation, outside of the $4.75M commitment the team has made to Wrigleyville residents. The $500M plan approved by the City Council calls for the ballpark's "right- and left-field walls to be extended outward by as much as 10 feet." This will give the Cubs the "space they need to add concessions and put up giant caissons needed to support a video scoreboard in left field and a see-through sign in right" (CHICAGO SUN-TIMES, 10/3).
