Phoenix may preserve Wright-designed structures

PHOENIX (AP) - It may wind up costing more than $1 million, but Phoenix is getting closer to approving a more detailed approach to the preservation of structures designed by famed architect Frank Lloyd Wright.

There are seven structures in the city designed by Wright, who died in 1959.

Historic Preservation Officer Michelle Dodds says the cost is estimated to be $1.2 million.

The Arizona Republic ( says the Phoenix City Council's Neighborhood, Planning and Development, Housing and Homeless subcommittee approved the plan Tuesday.

Dodds says the subcommittee's approval did not include funding, which would come through the coming budget process and likely would be spread over multiple fiscal years.

A date hasn't been set for a full council vote.
