The historical house of Mirza Mohammad Farrokhi Yazdi, an Iranian poet and journalist (1889-1939), in Yazd Province is to be handed over to the municipality to resume its suspended retrofitting project.
The mansion was willingly passed into the ownership of Iran's Cultural Heritage, Handicrafts and Tourism Organization by Reza Sokhandan, a relative to the late poet in 2009 to be renovated to serve as a museum.  
Although a large part of the restoration project has been carried out, its completion was delayed due to some hitches, prompting complaints by heritage experts, ISNA reported. Hossein Maserrat, a heritage researcher, has voiced criticism about the unclear state of the house in a letter to relevant authorities, as a result of which the Yazd City Council stepped in to settle the issue. 
The council's commission on cultural affairs held a meeting with provincial ICHHTO officials to decide the fate of the historical house.
