Programs

Because we like you, here are some great perks.

parking tokens

One sure way to make happier customers is to offer discounted parking. In partnership with the City of Kelowna and Royal Bank of Canada, the Parking Token Program entitles your business to receive 20% off Get Around Downtown parking tokens. Each 25 cent token for a Downtown metered parking spot is a small way to say thanks to your customers for their business. Simply present your Downtown Kelowna membership confirmation letter to a teller at the Royal Bank of Canada Downtown location at 102-1665 Ellis St.

lighten up GRANT

Lighten Up is an initiative to improve security for Downtown properties. Better lighting not only improves the exterior appearance of Downtown Buildings, it also provides better security and safety for pedestrians at night by illuminating walkways or alleys. Light up your building and receive a grant of 50% of the cost of approved work per building or property, up to a maximum of $2,500, whichever is less. Grants for safety lighting will be allocated on a case-by-case basis.

other programs

While we would love to take credit for these other great programs, we just can't. It wouldn't be right.

bike rack program

Businesses that are interested in putting a bike rack in front of their own business can view the City of Kelowna's brochure. The City of Kelowna will cover 50 per cent of the cost to purchase and install quality bike racks at qualifying businesses, and organizations that attract visits from the public. If you're interested in installing a bike rack, fill out the online application form and email it to the Active Transportation Coordinator.
