Wrigley renovation plan headed to Chicago City Council

The Wrigley Field renovation plan is one step closer to fruition after the City of Chicago planning commission approved the $500 million proposal.

The vote on Thursday means the proposal will move on to the full City of Chicago Council for consideration. Last week, the city's Landmarks Commission approved the deal, which includes a left-field jumbotron and right-field sign.

The signs are central to the Cubs' proposal because, according to team officials, revenue from them could bankroll the $500 million renovation plan-- $300 of which is earmarked for the actual Wrigley Field, and $200 million for a nearby hotel and park. Right now Wrigley Field is the only ballpark without big outfield signs.
