Emboldened by the framework of an agreement with City Hall to rebuild Wrigley Field, Cubs Chairman Tom Ricketts on Monday unveiled a long list of demands as the finer points are ironed out in the coming months.

Ricketts wants a property tax break reserved for those who renovate historic landmarks. He doesn't want to pay the city for expanding the ballpark onto public sidewalks and streets. He plans to push for as much electronic advertising inside and outside the stadium as possible. And he'd like the city to crack down on street peddlers and performers, neighborhood billboards that conflict with the team's sponsors and rooftop attendance.

Neighborhood groups and rooftop club owners railed against aspects of the plan, including more night games and a massive left field video screen the Cubs have declined to show publicly, even as the team acknowledged Monday it has artist renderings of what the controversial display would look like.

Although he cautioned that some of the team's wish list has to go through a democratic process of community input and zoning hearings, Ricketts indicated that he expects to win approval of his restoration plan without significant alterations.

"I want to go forward with the assumption that there will be lots of community meetings, lots of discussions, and we will end up with this plan," Ricketts said at a news conference at the ballpark. "And that's the way we look at it."

The details came a day after Mayor Rahm Emanuel, 44th Ward Ald. Thomas Tunney and Ricketts announced the broad outlines of an agreement that would allow the Cubs to play more night games and install a giant video board and advertising signs in the stadium. The $500 million plan also includes the development of a hotel and office building on adjacent property.

Ricketts maintained that the ballpark upgrades and other construction are needed to generate new revenues that will help field a competitive team and possibly end the longest championship drought in professional sports.
