CHICAGO (AP) - Chicago's City Council is set to consider a proposed $500 million renovation of historic Wrigley Field that includes a massive Jumbotron in left field.

Aldermen are scheduled to give the final vote on the project Wednesday.

The vote comes one day after it got crucial approval from a City Council committee and the alderman whose ward includes the ballpark.

Under the deal, the Chicago Cubs agreed not to erect outfield signs in addition to a Jumbotron in left field and another sign in right field. The plan also includes improved facilities for the players in the bowels of the 99-year-old ballpark and a hotel across the street.

The Cubs say they need advertising revenue from the signs to pay for the renovation.
