The Poteau City Council placed a moratorium on small business buildings Monday night, pending possible changes to zoning laws.
Mayor Jeff Shockley said no specific businesses are being targeted and the move is meant to protect and maintain attractive business districts.
The moratorium affects commercial buildings less than 20 feet wide.
Shockley said the city Planning Commission will be asked to look at zoning requirements and decide if they should be amended.
