The recently dubbed Veterans Drive in Kyle—the result of a renaming effort from its former handle, Rebel Drive, that took several months of planning and working with residents—is on its way to getting new signage.

The road was officially renamed Feb. 2, and during City Council's March 16 meeting, officials voted to give city staff direction to install signage for the portion of RM 150 that will now be Veterans Drive.

Officials said that signage should be installed by Memorial Day, May 31.

During the March 16 meeting, council also voted to open applications for businesses for reimbursement using $5,346 in city funds dedicated to address change costs.

City information states Veterans Drive will extend for 1.67 miles on RM 150 from its southern end at West Center Street north to the intersection of North Old Stagecoach Road/FM Road 2770.

"It is the intent that after this vote, we will put everything into motion with the notifications, the production of the signs and then planning for ... the unveiling of the signs themselves and the installation [of the signs]," Kyle Communications Director Samantha Armbruster said.

Other considerations for residents and business owners occupying Veterans Drive are also in the works, including a smooth transition for the postal service to the new addresses for all properties affected.

"The City will send a certified letter to all affected business owners, property owners and current residents." information from the city states. "Post office box holders along this roadway will be notified with a letter distributed by the postmaster."

City information states that the postal service will automatically deliver mail to both street names for one year.
