Welcome to the District of Houston, BC

The community of Houston is nestled in the beautiful Bulkley Valley amongst some of BC's finest outdoor recreational opportunities. Strategically located halfway between the hub cities of Prince George and Terrace, Houston is home to the outdoor enthusiast.

With a population of 3200 people, there is always room on the riverbank, lake or the many walking and hiking trails in the area.

The history of Houston stretches back to the turn of the Century with the expansion of the railroad through to the West Coast. Originally a farming community with the rich soils often found in valley bottoms, Houston has grown to become an industrial centre that exemplifies cohabitation with the farming community.

We invite you to come back soon and often.

    The District of Houston is embarking on a process to develop a Downtown Beautification Plan. All residents are invited to help set new directions for the downtown that benefit residents, visitors, and businesses.

    LUNCH-TIME DROP-IN MEET AND GREET (12 P.M.-1 P.M.)

    PUBLIC DOWNTOWN WORKSHOP CHARETTE (4 P.M. - 7 P.M.)

    On behalf of the District of Houston, I would like to invite you to a stakeholder workshop and walking tour regarding the Downtown Beautification Planning Process for Houston. Urban Systems has been retained to help in the preparation of this plan. Prior to preparing a draft vision and goals for the area, the consultants would like to engage stakeholders in a visioning workshop and downtown walking tour. The session will include a walking tour of the downtown area followed by an interactive workshop that will explore opportunities, challenges, and ideas for the beautification plan. Brainstorming and mapping tools will be used to make this a dynamic and efficient process.

    We welcome one or two members of your organization to attend. Please RSVP to Gerald Pinchbeck by Friday September 14th.
