DETROIT (AP) -- The Detroit City Council has delayed voting on a plan setting deadlines for preservationists seeking to save part of historic Tiger Stadium.
Detroit's Economic Development Corp. approved a new plan for the stadium this week. A council vote scheduled for Friday was delayed until the plan's final details are worked out.
Under the tentative deal, preservationists have until Nov. 1 to present plans and budgets for converting part of the stadium into a sports museum.
Funds for that project, estimated at $15.6 million, must be raised by March 1.
The stadium will be completely razed if fundraising falls short. The Ernie Harwell Foundation will have the option of building a museum on the site.
The ballpark opened in 1912 and closed in 1999. Demolition began in June.
