CHICAGO (CBS) — The Cubs could score a big win Wednesday, if the Chicago city council, as expected, votes final approval of the ballclub’s $500 million dollar plan to renovate Wrigley Field and redevelop the area along Clark Street to the west of the ballpark.
The $500 million plan cleared its next-to-last hurdle Tuesday, when the plan won unanimous council zoning committee approval.
Mayor Rahm Emanuel set the stage for the zoning committee vote by meeting with Wrigleyville Ald. Tom Tunney (44th) beforehand. Agreement was reached on a key point with opponents — the indefinite deferral of the proposed sky bridge over Clark Street.
