On Thursday, the Chicago Park District plans to propose to add 20,000 new lawn-style seats to the Charter One Pavilion on Northerly Island, as early as this summer. The resulting reconfiguration of the venue would also add trees, about 600 additional fixed seats, and an estimated doubling of the venue's annual ticket sale revenue.
