Prince's Paisley Park opening may be delayed


CHANHASSEN, Minn. (AP) - The public opening of Prince's suburban Minneapolis estate and studio complex this week may be delayed because the local city council has not approved a rezoning request.

That zoning change was tabled by the Chanhassen City Council Monday night following more than three hours of discussion and public comment. Several council members said they needed more time to study the impact of opening Paisley Park as a museum.

The Star Tribune  reports council member Bethany Tjornhom says the community needs time to talk about whether it wants to be a "tourist town" and host an anticipated 600,000 visitors a year.

Paisley Park tours were scheduled to begin Thursday, Oct. 6.

Prince collapsed died of an accidental overdose of the painkiller fentanyl at Paisley Park in April.
