Petition Passed to Rename a Street MLK in Belton


A local organization is one step closer to renaming a street in Belton Martin Luther King, Jr. Avenue.

On Friday, 86 percent of property owners along 9th Avenue were in favor for renaming it MLK Avenue. The petition needed 70 percent to pass.

Most of the property along the street belongs to University of Mary Hardin-Baylor. Belton's African American Churches United have been fighting to name a street MLK in the city since 2012.

Belton's city council will consider the proposal and vote on the name change on October 22th.
