During its weekly meeting on Thursday, October 9, the City Council voted to change Baltimore Avenue to Royals Avenue. It is a temporary name change as long as the Kansas City Royals are in the playoffs. Also, no actual street signs will be changed. It is only a honorary name change to have some fun as the Royals continue in their run to Take the Crown.
