Central to hold design standards workshop

The Central Planning and Zoning Commission, along with the City Council, will hold a design standards workshop at 6 p.m., July 8 at the Central Fire Station, 11646 Sullivan Road.

On June 11, Central’s City Council approved a moratorium on commercial building permits on certain main roads in Central until a design standard for these types of buildings could be adopted.

The design standards would be for any nonresidential building within a 200-foot right-of way along the following roads:

  • Magnolia Bridge/Wax Road from Amite River to Sullivan Road.
  • Joor Road from the Comite River to Gurney Road.
  • Greenwell Springs Road from the Comite River to Magnolia Bridge Road.
  • Sullivan/Central Thruway from the Comite River to Gurney Road.
