City pleased with early response to urban deer survey
Posted: March 14, 2014“I am quite happy with the early response of our residents,” says Chris Zettel, Corporate Communications Officer with the City of Cranbrook. “I am beginning to see some trending with some of the results, but it is still too early to make any solid conclusions yet.”
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. About 1,470 residents completed the 2010 survey.
“Sometimes even with the best planning and testing little things do come up. We’ve had a couple of small issues arise shortly after the survey went public, but those have been corrected,” says Zettel. “I want to thank those residents that made us aware of those issues, so we could look after them.”
Residents can access the survey online on the city’s website – www.cranbrook.ca 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.
