In 2015 the Downtown Kelowna Association board adopted a new five-year strategic plan. The plan was developed through input from stakeholders, community partners, DKA staff, and members just like you. The plan features three strategic priorities: creating a clean, welcoming and safe Downtown, business retention and recruitment, advocacy, membership relations and promotions and events.
Downtown is growing, and with more people playing, living and working Downtown, it is crucial that we create a safe, welcoming and clean neighborhood. The DKA works tirelessly to support this cause through various on-street services, such as our Downtown On Call team, or our Downtown Clean Team. We work hand in hand with the City of Kelowna, and many other community organizations to ensure these goals are met.
In past years we’ve seen tremendous investment and development Downtown. The DKA’s focus is to encourage more successful businesses to set up shop Downtown and to retain the long-standing businesses that contribute to our vibrant community. We work to market Downtown to developers as the most attractive neighborhood for investment and provide meaningful data to prospective businesses through our prospectus map.
