Cranbrook residents asked to take deer management survey


Residents of the City of Cranbrook will be asked for their input on urban deer and possible future population management strategies beginning on Monday March 10.

The 17 question survey – both online and a paper version - will be available starting at 8:30 a.m. on Monday March 10, 2014 with the survey closing at 4:30 p.m. on Friday March 28, 2014.

The survey is intended to provide residents an opportunity to assess the effectiveness of the current deer management program and provide input to Council on future direction of this initiative. The last time the public was surveyed about urban deer was September 2010.

“The 2010 survey was conducted prior to the City actually conducting the culls of 2011 and 2013,” says Mayor Wayne Stetski. “It’s time to check with our citizens to see where they would like us to go in the future with Cranbrook’s resident deer population.”

Residents can access the survey online on the City’s website – and click on ‘Urban Deer Resident Survey’ under City of Cranbrook Links on the homepage.

Residents without access to a computer, printed versions of the survey will be available for pick up at reception at City Hall during regular business hours.

Residents requesting a paper copy must provide photo identification with a City of Cranbrook mailing address to be able to get a survey. Completed surveys can be mailed back to City Hall or dropped off by the 4:30 p.m. Friday March 28, 2014 deadline. Postmarks will not be accepted. Completed surveys must be received at City Hall by the deadline date. Late submissions will be disqualified.

Staff will compile all the survey responses and results into a report for presentation to Council later in the spring.
