Membership in the DPA

Downtown Penticton Association Business Improvement Area (BIA)

The Downtown Penticton Association (DPA) is a not-for-profit organization committed to ensuring the Business Improvement Area (BIA) is a strong, vibrant, and prosperous downtown, main street, and commercial district.

The DPA unifies its membership and community – working to make Downtown Penticton a “Destination.” The DPA improves communication lines between you, the business community and the City of Penticton municipal council and staff.

As established within our bylaw, every business within the DPA area is automatically included in the DPA membership and contributors to the DPA budget through a special levy (tax). The cost of a membership (tax levy) is based on the property’s commercial assessment.

Currently, our boundaries are Haynes to Van Horne and Lakeshore to Eckhardt – see Jurisdiction – DPA Area Map.
