STATEMENT FROM MAYOR EMANUEL ON THE APPROVED WRIGLEY FIELD PLANS

“The plan approved today for Wrigley Field is a step forward for the Cubs and the neighborhood. Not only does it upholds the architectural heritage of the stadium that Chicagoans can enjoy, but will generate thousands of jobs. I fully expect the owners to initiate the restoration of Wrigley Field and to invest in the surrounding Wrigleyville area, including traffic flow, security, and public parks. In addition, discussions with the rooftop owners should – and must – continue so that this plan remains a win-win.”
