CENTRAL, La. (AP) - No commercial building permits will be issued for sites on certain roads in Central until an ordinance that sets architectural standards is developed and approved by the city council.

-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 Thru-Way from the Comite River to Gurney Road.
The proposed architectural ordinance only applies to buildings on these main roads in Central.
