Residents and businesses in the 5 surrounding neighborhoods and residents in Wilmette, have questions and concerns regarding this project some of them are below


  • Ryan Field is zoned as a U2 athletic district. If NU proposes non-educational, commercial uses will they be required to request a zoning map change to become zoned commercial and pay commercial taxes?
  • Will the new stadium footprint include changing the west and east parking lots? If so, how? How will  parking requirements met?
  • Do the plans require building a parking garage, and if so where?
  • What will be the final seating capacity?
  • Will NU be asking for a liquor license for the stadium?
  • How will a new stadium impact the local traffic and the neighboring streets in the 6th & 7th Wards?
  • What will the city and NU do to prevent possible negative impacts to our quality of life in the community? Parking lot noise and partying after events?
  • Are there plans for professional activities and events at the stadium?
  • What are the plans to work with neighbors during the constrction in regards to traffic 


Most importantly, the neighbor's voices need to be part of the approved final design and plan.
