Statement on Wrigley Field Agreement


Location: Chicago, IL

Today, U.S. Representative Mike Quigley (IL-05) released the following statement regarding the agreement reached for the $500 million renovation of Wrigley Field:

"As someone who has lived in the neighborhood for 32 years, I believe this deal provides the framework to keep Wrigley Field around for another hundred years as the most beautiful ballpark in baseball, while laying the foundation for a World Series win. The framework will have a lasting positive effect in the Lakeview community, promoting economic growth and creating jobs both in the short and long term, while addressing neighborhood concerns of public safety and traffic. I want to thank Alderman Tunney and Mayor Emanuel for their leadership throughout this process, and as a long-time Cubs fan, I am especially thankful to the Ricketts Family for their continued investment in the city of Chicago."
