We are sweeping our way into spring throughout West Kelowna with the start of our annual street sweeping program.
Starting the week of March 20, crews will begin sweeping in the Gellatly Bay, Glen Canyon and Goats Peak neighbourhoods and working their way to higher elevations.
Residents can help make a clean sweep by:
1. Watching for “No Parking” signs – when the signs appear at entrances to their neighbourhoods, and crews are working in their areas, parking off-street Monday to Friday between 7:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m.
2. Sweeping debris off sidewalks onto the street in front of their homes, but by not piling road sand and salt into piles, as that slows the sweepers’ progress.
Crews have also started sweeping parking lots at City parks and facilities, transit exchanges and bus stops, multi-use corridors and major sidewalks that border public properties and arterial corridors.
Depending on weather and equipment availability, street sweeping will generally occur on weekdays (some Saturday work may be required) within the following date ranges:
Early March – Westbank Centre commercial area, excluding Highway 97
