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.

    Following a busy construction season for the community, the District is pleased to announce that the 9th Street Revitalization project work will be coming to an end for the winter season. Unfortunately, unseasonably wet weather and other unforeseen circumstances have resulted in the delay of some finishing aspects of the project including sections of coloured concrete and concrete sidewalk along Highway 16, hydroseeding, line painting, and the addition of benches, bike racks, garbage cans, and bollards. Residents can look forward to these finishing touches in the Spring of 2021.
