CENTRAL, LA (WAFB) - Fourteen acres in Central could soon exchange hands, which would mean a community center and city hall for the city.

The Central Community School Board agreed to sell 14 of its 29 acres that was formerly Central Middle School to the city.

If purchased by the city, the area will be developed into a community center for residents, as well as a place to house the city's government.
