Just a reminder
Chapter 400, Article II, of the CODE of HOUSTON ;
Height of Grass, Growth of Weeds, and Maintenance of Trees and Other Vegetation.

The maximum height for grass is 6" (six inches).

Trees and other vegetation are to be trimmed to a minimum height of 
10 ' (ten feet) over sidewalks, and
14' (fourteen feet) over streets or right-of ways.

Article III ; Storage of Detrimental Objects or Materials (Objects unsuitable for outside storage)
Article IV ; External Placement of  Interior Furniture

Town officials will periodically check properties and post the property for any violations.

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.

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.
