NPR's Michele Norris talks with Ilicia Berg, commissioner for the Chicago Department of Planning and Development. She also sits on the Commission on Chicago Landmarks and supports giving Wrigley Field landmark status. Recently, Berg received a letter from Baseball Commissioner Bud Selig saying landmark status for the ball field may eventually lead to its loss. The ballpark has preliminary landmark status — which prevents the Chicago Cubs ball club from making major repairs to the facility.
