A tight-knit community situated only minutes from the Energy Corridor, downtown and the Galleria, Spring Valley Village is home to a few thousand lucky residents who take great pride in their neighborhoods and families.
While often it’s the location and great schools that draw families to Spring Valley Village, it’s the people, the trees, and the small town feel of the city that cause people to fall in love and put down roots.
Drive around Spring Valley Village and you will see bits of history on every corner, as the town’s streets are named after the early residents and developers.
Spring Valley, one of the six Memorial Villages operating independently of Houston, was incorporated as a city in 1955 in order to enact zoning regulations. As Houston has no zoning laws, residents wanted to protect their residential area from overdevelopment. Originally, Spring Valley Village zoning ordinances limited residential structures to a single story, reflected in earlier built homes. Then, in 1981, the ordinances were amended to allow two-story homes as well.
That original passion to keep this space beautiful has paid off. Located ten miles west of downtown Houston on the north side of I-10, the Village spans 1.6 square miles of homes, trees, parks and more inside the annexed boundaries of the City of Houston. And with less than 4000 residents, the community is just as close as it was in 1955.
Although Spring Valley Village incorporated in 1955, it does not have its own post office, and all postal addresses are designated as “Houston” by the United States Postal Service.
Spring Valley Village has its own Police Department located at 1025 Campbell Rd. right next to City Hall. The police department takes great pride in their response time. If you are going out of town, there is a form you can complete to request them to keep an eye out on your home while you are gone.
Spring Valley Village holds periodic festivals and other events for its citizens. At the Fall Festival, held every year at the City Hall Park, families enjoy a petting zoo, pumpkin patch, booths and sometimes even the chance to sit on Texas Longhorns. Other times you can find families watching an outdoor movie at the park.
Shoppers find Spring Valley Village perfectly convenient. The Galleria, Memorial City Mall, and City Centre are all under seven miles away, enabling residents to find what they’re looking for without traveling far.
Whether you’re in the mood for organic greens and a veggie burger, sushi, or a steak and potato, there is a restaurant waiting to serve you within minutes of Spring Valley Village. For date nights or family nights, try any of City Centre’s long list of establishments. And enjoy countless other eateries just outside the neighborhood.
