It didn’t take long for residents with East Lake View Neighbors to reach a consensus about an idea for a patio over Sheffield as an extension of Wrigley Field’s right field.
They don’t like it.
“We’re not happy campers about anything over Sheffield,” said Chester Kropidlowski, the group’s chair.
The planned development approved by City Council two weeks ago allowed the Cubs to move right field back eight feet onto Sheffield. In the eleventh hour, rooftop owners suggested creating a patio over Sheffield to move a 650-square-foot right field sign back and keep it from blocking views.
