Street sweepers roll onto West Kelowna streets starting March 20

Sweepers on the move

Spring street sweeping on residential roads is set to get underway Monday in West Kelowna.

Crews will start in the Gellatly Bay, Glen Canyon and Goats Peak areas next week. The work is scheduled to wrap up on May 5 in Bear Creek.

Residents are asked to watch for No Parking signs in their neighbourhood. Park off street during the days that sweepers will be in your area so that they can clear away as much sand and gravel as possible.

You can sweep debris off the sidewalk and onto the street in front of your home, but the City of West Kelowna asks residents not to pile it up because that slows the sweepers’ progress.

Machines will be out from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday to Friday and some Saturdays during the spring cleanup.

Some crews have already been busy clearing bus stops, multi-use corridors and major sidewalks that border public properties and arterial roads.

Here is the anticipated schedule, but note it depends on the weather and availability of equipment.

  • Week of March 20 – Gellatly Bay, Glen Canyon, and Goats Peak
  • March 27 to 30 – South Boucherie including Mission Hill, Green Bay, and West Bay
  • March 31 to April 4 – Lakeview Heights and Casa Loma
  • April 4 to 5 – Boucherie Centre
  • April 6 to 10 – West Kelowna Estates
  • April 11 to 13 – Rose Valley

  • April 26 to May 2 – Glenrosa

Updates on the street sweeping schedule will be posted on the city’s website.
