(KSL News) The Provo City Council voted last night to delay any change in the historic designation for the St. Francis of Assisi Catholic Church for two weeks.

The Catholic Diocese wants to sell it to finance a new church. Potential buyers include a developer who wants to tear it down. Preservationists trying to save the building have until April 19 to come up with $1.2 million to buy the property.
