City Council Vote Delayed for David Wright House

As expected the Phoenix City Council voted on November 7 to delay the vote on Landmark designation for the David and Gladys Wright House. The item will come back to the agenda at the December 5 meeting. Because of a pending contract to purchase the David Wright House (by a still unnamed buyer) the Council postponed action with the hope that the pending sale will close before the next meeting and that owner consent will be obtained, thereby avoiding a conflict over the past practice of obtaining consent prior to designation. Once again Phoenix Mayor Greg Stanton was very supportive of preservation.

Conservancy representatives were invited to make brief comments and once again emphasized the importance of approving landmark designation, and thanked the city and the local organizations and residents for their support for preserving this important Wright house.

More information will be posted as it becomes available.
