Bylaws Under Consideration

From time to time, Council reviews, considers and adopts new bylaws and bylaw amendments to keep the District's various bylaws current and enforceable. Under the Community Charter, any proposed bylaw must be given three readings by Council and then a final adoption reading before coming into force.

This page will be updated regularly to provide a location for residents and other interested persons to review the District's proposed bylaws prior to being adopted.


Status: This bylaw will be presented to Council on July 16, 2019 for third reading.

The District of Houston is considering this draft bylaw amendment to establish tax exemption programs related only to parcels within the Downtown Commercial Area or the Highway Service Commercial Area as shown on Schedule “A”.
