Parking, rats among problems Wrigley Field neighbors cite in renovation

That is the scene along Sheffield and Waveland avenues as the Cubs continue the opening phase of their renovation of Wrigley Field, which the team recently announced won't be complete until the end of May.

"Basically I hate it," said Meg Styck, who owns a home near the intersection of Kenmore and Waveland.

The Cubs are providing free parking for residents on Waveland and Sheffield in the green lot at 1126 West Grace St.

The Cubs also have extended that offer to those who live in the area bordered by Addison to the south, Racine and Clark to the west, Irving Park on the north and Wilton on the east, according to spokesman Julian Green. For more information on the guidelines and to get a pass go to Wrigleyfield.com.

One of the biggest problems with the renovations began when the Cubs renovated the green lot near the intersection of Racine Avenue and Grace Street. Shortly after construction there began, Kata said, rats began overrunning her neighborhood. .

Runaway safeline founded in Lakeview now serves the nation
