Spring street sweeping is underway in the District of West Kelowna.

The clean up of sand and salt from the municipality’s roads will continue until approximately mid-May.

Weather permitting, the program will run about eight weeks and progress as follows:

– Westbank Centre

– Lakeview Heights and Casa Loma

– Boucherie Centre

– Gellatly

– Mission Hill, Sunnyside, Green Bay and Pritchard

– Glenrosa and Smith Creek

– Shannon Lake

– Rose Valley and West Kelowna Estates

– Industrial Park.

Street sweeping generally starts in lower lying areas due to the greater likelihood of snow falling at higher elevation neighbourhoods in March.

Residents are asked to help with the cleaning process by parking vehicles off street while sweepers work in their neighbourhoods. Signs will be posted prior to street sweeping commencing in each area.

The district reminds residents sand piles will be temporarily deposited in each neighbourhood during the street sweeping process and will be removed as quickly as possible once cleaning is completed in that area.

A map has been created to indicate the approximate sand piling locations; it can be found at districtofwestkelowna.ca via the Spring Street Sweeping notice posted on the home page.
