Wrigleyville community leaders accuse Cubs of plaza power play

Wrigleyville community leaders on Tuesday accused the Cubs of running roughshod over the neighborhood — and ignoring legitimate public safety concerns — in a heavy-handed attempt to open what they called the “Midwest’s largest beer garden.”

In a letter to Cubs Chairman Tom Ricketts, presidents of East Lakeview, Southport, Hawthorne and Triangle Neighbors Associations accused the Cubs of pulling the plug on months of negotiations in favor of an end-run around area residents and their local Ald. Tom Tunney (44th).
