The Town of Houston is just a little off the beaten path, comfortably situated between Milford and Harrington off Rt 14 or Milford-Harrington Highway.  Houston residents enjoy a simple, small town atmosphere that can't be found in many other towns these days.

In recent years, Town Council updated the Town's Comprehensive Plan which can be found on the State of Delaware website.  It contains an abundance of information about the community's rich heritage and promising future.  I encourage you to review it to gain a better understanding of the Town's goals.

In 2010 Council adopted a revised Code of the Town of Houston.  There were many codes that remained the same because they still speak to the issues of small town life.  And there were a few that needed to be updated in order to accommodate the changing times of every town, specifically the Zoning Code and Subdivision Code.  Everywhere you look these days towns and cities are expanding and new homes are being tucked into nooks and crannies.

It bears repeating:  Houston's residents enjoy that simple, small town atmosphere that can't be found in many other locations these days.  And the Town Council not only supports that idea, we look forward to maintaining it and encouraging it.

So if you're looking for a small community with deep roots and wide open spaces, then it's worth your time to pay us a visit. 

Thank you for visiting our website.  Have a look around it to see what's going on.
