Central approves new zoning map, amends code


CENTRAL, La. (AP) — The Central City Council has approved a new zoning map that outlines how the city should develop into the future.

In many ways, The Advocate reports ( ) the new zoning map is similar to the old one with commercial enterprises concentrated along main thoroughfares and intersections, and with residential properties getting less dense the farther they are from the center of the city.

The city started with planning the city-parish had done for the area before Central incorporated in 2005 and then moved on to develop its own master plan approved in 2010.

David Barrow, chief administration officer for Central, says the City Council approved the zoning ordinance in November and the map approved Tuesday helps reflect what was included in that action.
