Battle between Cubs, Wrigley rooftop owners may be ending

Posted: Updated:
CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -

Finally, the battle between the Chicago Cubs and Wrigley Field rooftop owners could be nearing a conclusion.

If the Chicago Cubs agree to limit the number of signs they plan to install during the proposed renovation of "The Friendly Confines," rooftop owners have agreed to not file a lawsuit.

Originally, there were only going to be two signs installed: a video scoreboard in left field and another advertising sign in right field. But after talks broke down in May, Chicago Cubs owner Tom Ricketts announced plans to include five additional advertising signs for the field, bringing the total to seven.

After the announcement, the rooftop owners had threatened a lawsuit. But according to reports, the owners told Ricketts and the team that if the Cubs go back to their original proposal, they will back off. 

The Cubs also have Chicago's City Commission on Landmarks to deal with. Since the ballpark is considered a city landmark, the team must get approval for any changed. The commission is expected to be presented with the latest plan next Thursday.
