The town of Viola has recently implemented strict zoning regulations, designed to prevent the town from being overtaken by the suburban onslaught that has blemished many rural Delaware communities. The regulations: Prohibit businesses with more than 2 employees from setting up shop in town. Restrict the construction of multi-family dwellings. Forbid any annexation of outlying parcels into the original town proper. These restrictions are designed to keep the town liveable and quaint. The town contains a Post Office, VCF Ruritan hall and the Felton-Viola United Methodist Church. These are the only non-residential structures within town limits. Viola is one of those places where nothing ever happens, its quiet and safe. Its a great place to live, according to residents.
