Statement From Mayor Emanuel On The Approved Wrigley Field Plans

Mayor's Press Office    312.744.3334

"The plan approved today for Wrigley Field is a step forward for the Cubs and the neighborhood. Not only does it uphold the architectural heritage of the stadium that Chicagoans can enjoy, but it 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."
