The Maesar school was slated for demolition, but thanks to a 1.29 million dollar contribution this afternoon, the school will become part of a housing project to benefit senior citizens. When finished the school building will feature 32 apartments for seniors.

City officials say the project is a win-win situation, preserving history and improving the city's future.

Mayor Lewis Billings: "This is a day to congratulate all of Provo because we have saved, by what you've done, an important part of our past."

The money comes from a financial partnership that is designed to start the project and to help find more money.

City officials hope the project will help revitalize the entire neighborhood.
