Merritt Paulson has expressed interest in building a medical clinic at PGE Park, replicating a similar concept at Pizza Hut Park in Dallas. But some say those ideas caused his renovation deal to miss its Oct. 1 deadline.

Instead, due in part to questions about the clinic arrangement from city chief administrative officer Ken Rust, the deadline has been extended until December or January. City officials and Paulson haven’t agreed on how to share rent proceeds from a proposed Providence clinic. Meantime, construction is to begin on the $31 million project three months from now so Paulson’s MLS franchise has a home by 2011.

Disagreement over the financials of the clinic is not the only holdup.
