Belton wants to revise their street naming policy


The Street Naming Committee will present two alterations to the current street naming policy for the city of Belton.

The first possible change is to count non-responsive homeowners as neutral. The second possible change is to keep the current street name if 50% of homeowners are against the street name change.

"Property owners are fairly protective of their streets and their names, because they have been there for a long time and it's meaningful to them," explains Larry Guess, a Street Naming Committee member.

The committee and policy was formed after a group approached city council about renaming a street after Martin Luther King. After two failed attempts over a year long span, City Council has found the current policy to be too strict.

Belton is one of the few cities in Central Texas that does not have a street named after Martin Luther King Jr.
