So, you want to know a little more about Kyle, Texas? That’s why you clicked here! We can’t say we blame you — it’s a very cool town.
Kyle was founded in 1880. The town was named after Fergus Kyle, the son of Claiborne Kyle who moved here from Tennessee. Under the famed Auction Oak Tree, plats of land were auctioned off to several hundred folks who became the town’s first citizens.
My, how we’ve grown! In 2016, Kyle was the second largest city in Hays County with a population of 36,800. Population estimates put Kyle at 55,000 by 2030.
With easy access to locales north and south, Kyle is a major city on the I-35 corridor in Central Texas. It’s home to Seton Medical Center Hays, Hays CISD administrative offices, Austin Community College Hays, several medical facilities, and H-E-B Plus, major retailers, numerous restaurants and many homegrown businesses.
Here are some cool Kyle tidbits:
- Kyle got its first stoplight in 2007.
- Kyle is 30.4 square miles, with 185.5 miles of roadway and more than 600 acres of beautiful park land.
- Kyle is a Home Rule city. Residents elect the mayor and city council, but a city manager, Scott Sellers, runs the city’s day-to-day operations. He does so with a $79 million operating budget.
- Our Parks and Recreation department offers community events including Market Days, Founders Parade, Santa’s Arrival and Tree Lighting, Polar Bear Splash, Easter Eggstravaganza, and our annual July 4th Fireworks.
- Signature special events include Kyle Field Day, Kyle Hogwash and Hops & Jalapenos.
- Kyle is now home to the Central Texas Lobos, a semi-professional soccer team.
- Kyle is also a good place for business. The city houses many businesses and with an educated population, there’s plenty of room for growth.
City of Kyle National Night Out 2013
The Kyle Police Department is hosting a National Night Out Central Block Party for residents that live in historic Kyle and those residents without a neighborhood party. So, please join the Police Department for food, fun and entertainment. The Central Block Party will be at Historic City Hall located at 101 South Burleson Street.
The introduction of National Night Out, “America’s Night Out Against Crime”, in 1984 began an effort to promote involvement in crime prevention activities, police-community partnerships, neighborhood camaraderie and send a message to criminals letting them know that neighborhoods are organized and fighting back. NATW’s (National Association of Town Watch) National Night Out program culminates annually, on the first Tuesday of August (In Texas, the first Tuesday of October).
NATW’s Executive Director, Matt Peskin introduced National Night Out in 1984.The first National Night Out took place on Tuesday, August 7th 1984. That first year, 2.5 million Americans took part across 400 communities in 23 states.
The seed had been planted.
National Night Out now involves over 37 million people and 15,000 communities from all fifty states, U.S. Territories, Canadian cities, and military bases worldwide.
The traditional “lights on” campaign and symbolic front porch vigils turned into a celebration across America with various events and activities including, but not limited to, block parties, cookouts, parades, visits from emergency personnel, rallies and marches, exhibits, youth events, safety demonstrations and seminars, in effort to heighten awareness and enhance community relations.
Peskin said, “It’s a wonderful opportunity for communities nationwide to promote police-community partnerships, crime prevention, and neighborhood camaraderie. While the one night is certainly not an answer to crime, drugs and violence, National Night Out represents the kind of spirit, energy and determination to help make neighborhoods a safer place year round. The night celebrates safety and crime prevention successes and works to expand and strengthen programs for the next 364 days.”
