Cubs chairman Tom Ricketts said the team is making progress with Chicago city officials on Wrigley Field renovation plans.
However, the efforts to get more night games at Wrigley this season are on hold for now.
"I don't think that's on the table at the moment," Ricketts said of an effort for additional night games in 2013.
The issue was derailed by ongoing conflict with neighbourhood leaders, causing Mayor Rahm Emanuel to delay support for the request until the sides reach an agreement on multiple issues.
"All the discussions on night games is toward the future."
Speaking Sunday during his annual spring training address with reporters, Ricketts praised the mayor for being involved in the Cubs' efforts to get the permission to closing Sheffield Avenue for game day street fairs and to lift restrictions blocking the team from putting up more advertising at the ballpark.
He said he believes enough progress will be made on that "in the next few weeks" to ensure the renovation project can begin on time next fall.
The team last month unveiled a $300 million Wrigley renovation plan it says ownership will pay for entirely on the condition it gets the concessions it seeks to allow more stadium-related revenue streams.
"The mayor's been helpful. It'll help move the process forward," Ricketts said.
