Spring Clean Up!

April 10, 2019

Date: April 10, 2019

Spring has sprung! Time for spring cleaning not only on our homes, street sweeping but also time to clean our businesses. Rutland here we come!



URBA -  The Uptown Rutland Business Association was formed in 2007 and it’s here to help support the businesses in our designated area in many ways.  At this time of year as the snow melts away and we make it out of the long winter, URBA, realizes the importance of storefront appearances and how they are perceived by the customers. You never get a second chance to make a first impression. Presenting a clean and well cared for face of your business can be the difference between drawing in more customers and clients or driving them away. We are lucky to have a low lease rate here in Rutland and our properties full of so many great businesses. In order to add support to cleanliness of our 225+ businesses in the Rutland BIA URBA started the first spring clean up in 2015 and here we are headed into our 4th annual.

This event is open to the public and more hands make light work. We form into teams and head out on a mission to help clean up the area. It is a great way for business owners, members of the public and families to get together to clean up around our BIA. Below is the map of the route we take.

The RDCO provides garbage bags,pinchers, vests and pick up the bags when we are done and the City of Kelowna always makes sure they clean the streets and sidewalks before our event

We also have snacks prizes and refreshments thanks to the businesses of Willow Park Shopping Centre and McDonalds.




Rain or shine we are there will you be? Please feel free to call the office 250- 451-9861 or email [email protected]  to register individually or as a team.
