With the allowed uses of Wrigley Field’s Clark Street plaza still under debate, the Chicago Cubs said Thursday the triangle plot would not be in use until after the 2016 season.
“The plaza is not going to be completed before the end of the baseball season, so if anything were to happen at all, it would be after that,” said Mike Lufrano, Cubs vice president of community affairs.
And as the talks continue, Ald. Tom Tunney (44th) pledged that he would keep the neighborhood from becoming “Rickettsville,” a reference to Cubs Chairman Tom Ricketts.
“To me, your investment is just as important to me as the billionaire investment,” Tunney said. “I’m doing my darndest to make sure we balance the interests of the community with the Cubs.”
