Panel OKs Wrigley plans for possible tax credit


The Commission on Chicago Landmarks has approved changes the Chicago Cubs made to their Wrigley Field renovation plan in an effort to obtain a possible federal tax credit.

Cubs officials went before the panel Thursday to get a thumbs up for a plan to move some of the outfield ad signage for which it won city approval in July.

The latest changes include eliminating a 650-foot sign in left field and swapping locations of a video board and a 650-foot sign in right field. The right-field video board would be smaller. The left-field video board would move closer to the center-field scoreboard.

The changes could mean the Cubs could receive up to $75 million in tax credits. Wrigley Field is

undergoing a privately funded $575 million renovation.
