CHICAGO (CBS) — A Chicago alderman on Monday said he opposes parts of a plan that would allow the Chicago Cubs to generate more revenue out of Wrigley Field, according to a report in the Chicago Sun-Times.

Under a plan by Mayor Rahm Emanuel, that money, about $150 million, would be used to help pay for renovations at the ball park.

Ald. Tom Tunney (44th) said he’s opposed any additional signage that blocks the view of the rooftop clubs overlooking Wrigley, the Sun-Times reported.

Tunney also said he doesn’t like the Cubs’ plan to close Sheffield and Waveland every game day for street fairs.
