In response to growing concerns expressed by some Draper residents about the impact of deer on their property, Draper City is in the process of identifying the severity of the urban deer problem, gathering information on urban deer populations and collecting comments from residents. Draper City is exploring the Urban Deer Control Program sponsored by the Division of Wildlife Resources (DWR).
In an effort to better understand the problems raised by the concerned Draper residents, and to inform all residents about the DWR program, the city is holding an Open House on Wednesday, April 25, at 7:00 p.m. in the Draper City Council Chambers. The presenters include: Brian Cook (Humphries Archery), Wes Alexander (Division of Wildlife Resources), and Draper Police Chief John Eining.
No decision has been made yet on whether or not to implement this type of program. City leaders continue to gather facts and opinions in order to make an educated and informed decision. They are not considering this program for anywhere east of Highland or in the Suncrest area. At some point, the City Council will make a final decision on whether or not to implement the program.
