CENTRAL, La. (AP) - The Central School Board has agreed to sell to the city of Central 14 of the 29 acres it owns to turn into a City Hall complex and community center.

The Advocate reports (https://bit.ly/NxL5eQ ) the property, which until 2012 was the home of Central Middle School, is one of several properties the city is considering.

In addition to a building for City Hall, the city is looking for space that could encompass meeting rooms, a walking path or possible park, as well as enough space for expansion that could add other amenities and provide an area for some commercial projects.

The state has earmarked about $2 million in capital outlay funding for a new Central municipal complex, and the city’s general fund has more than $8 million in reserves to draw upon.
