Generally, which of the following best describes your feelings toward the deer population in the City of Ann Arbor?
Between April 6 and April 29, 2016, the city is conducting an A2 Open City Hall online survey to evaluate residents’ interactions with and attitudes about deer in the city of Ann Arbor, as well as, attitudes toward the city’s deer management plan. The survey, available at www.a2gov.org/a2opencityhall, will take approximately 15 minutes to complete. In order for opinions and experiences to be captured, participants must register and sign in to A2 Open City Hall. Although you can choose to provide anonymous feedback, registration is required, which allows results to be mapped by ward.
In consultation with the UM Survey Research Center, survey questions underwent an expert panel review as well as focus group pretesting to minimize bias and ensure question clarity.
Per resolution, City Council directed city staff to conduct an A2 Open City Hall survey in the spring in order to gather feedback about deer management efforts and include responses in a deer management report due to Council in May.
Thank you for participating.
