Experience Christmas Downtown

The holiday season is on its way! We look forward to working collaboratively with you, our businesses, to make this years campaign a smashing success. Our objectives are to create positive buzz and incentivize spending in a way that draws more people to the downtown core and is easily promoted through social media and other channels.

Stay tuned for more information coming your way in the next few weeks!

Graffiti Clean-up

To many of our dismay, the temperatures, along with the leaves, are slowly starting to fall. We take care of ourselves and our family to prepare for winter, but some folks forget about maintenance to their property or business. The CAP Team knows all about this as we remove graffiti from public and city property, as needed. If the weather is too cold, the chemicals used to clean your surface will not be nearly as effective and in some cases, may even freeze. Therefore, in the fall it is always a good idea to remove any graffiti before it is too cold to do so.

The CAP Team also works in partnership with Graffiti Task Force. According to Ronnie, the manager of the force, “Downtown would not look as good as it does without you guys!” If you are not the do it yourself kind of person, the Kamloops Graffiti Task Force can be contacted. Depending on the season and the availability of the staff, someone can visit your business for a quote on the estimated costs. For more information about them please visit https://www.kamloops.ca/crimeprevention/graffititaskforcesociety.shtml.

Another resource for people to use is the MyKamloops smart phone app. Among other handy things, it allows people to take pictures of graffiti they find and report it to the Public Works department at the city so it can be removed in the future.

Advertising Opportunity

Downtown Kamloops is thrilled to announce our partnership with Kamloops this Week which will allow us to get the Downtown Directory into more than 30,000 homes and businesses.
