The Kamloops Central Business Improvement Association is moving down the road.

It will take possession of 202-246 Second Ave. on May 1.

“It’s just time,” KCBIA executive director Carl DeSantis said. “We’ve outgrown that office and we’re looking to take the next step forward and better serve our members downtown.”

The KCBIA currently has two offices, with DeSantis’ office above Caffé Motivo in the 200-block of Victoria Street and the Customer Care and Patrol (CAP) team operating out of 340 Victoria St.

DeSantis said after a public washroom facility is built at 340 Victoria St., the CAP team will continue to operate out of that location.

The new address will provide the KCBIA with more space to offer webinars, training and engagement opportunities.

Meanwhile, the association is working on a new event downtown. On June 1 and June 2, the KCBIA will for the first time host a three-on-three basketball tournament in the 300-block of Victoria Street. The event is dubbed the Bank3 3 on 3 Tournament and follows a similar street hockey event previously held downtown.

“There’s going to be a variety of teams and a variety of different divisions. We’ll have entertainment of course,” DeSantis said. “It’s going to be very exciting for everybody.”

Team registration is $200. To register, click here.
