CHICAGO (AP) — Mayor Rahm Emanuel says the Chicago Cubs' revised proposal for renovating Wrigley Field requires further study and won't go before the city's landmarks commission next week as planned.
The Cubs released details of the expanded renovation plan Tuesday. It calls for new signs, including some that would block the view from nearby rooftop venues. Those venues have threatened to sue to block work on the century-old ballpark.
Emanuel told reporters after a City Council meeting Wednesday that the new plan contains many additions, including some that had never been seen before and require more study.
The delay in consideration by the landmarks commission was a setback for the Cubs. The team wants to move forward quickly after months of tough negotiations with the rooftop club owners.
