Mesa City Council Approves Cubs Spring Training Plan

Allan Henry-US PRESSWIRE

The new deal would give the Cubs the best spring facility in baseball.

By a 7-0 vote, the Mesa, Arizona city council tonight approved the Memorandum of Understanding between the city and the Cubs (you can find the entire MOU as a link on this East Valley Tribune article), providing the first step in building a new spring training facility for the Cubs that would include a 15,000-seat stadium, practice fields, team workout facilities and offices, and a "Wrigleyville West" that would provide a year-round tourist attraction in Mesa.

I'll have more details and analysis tomorrow morning, but wanted to get this posted right after the vote was taken.
