PHOENIX (AP) - Arizona State University will not take over a Frank Lloyd Wright-designed home in Phoenix despite calls for a partnership to keep the house from becoming a public destination.

The Arizona Republic reports (https://bit.ly/24QjkQR ) that representatives with the David and Gladys Wright House in March won approval from the Phoenix City Council for time to develop a strategy to preserve the home and operate it while raising revenue.

ASU officials said in a statement Thursday that despite talks a few months ago, the university is not going to assume responsibility as owners or operators of the home.

Wright House spokesman Chip Scutari says ASU could be a potential programming partner, but that more information will not be available until this summer.

Wright house officials have proposed allowing tours and weddings at the home to raise money.
