Construction plans for the museum called for a zoo, visitors' center, car exhibition and a theater where Newton could perform live nightly. It was initially scheduled to open late last year.
Clark County building records show CSD received a notice of violation for working on the museum without a permit in October. The company later obtained the necessary paperwork in December.
Newton has lived at Casa de Shenandoah since 1968.
