Why are cars allowed to park on the Streets in Edgemont area where there are no sidewalks? They are parking in lanes marked for bicycles and walkers? To name a few streets:parts of Foothill Drive where speed limit is 15-25 mph and cars are clocked going 40-50 mph. Other streets Cherokee, Bannock, and Navaho to mention a few. Hope you will consider this topic for safety of children and residents of this area. Thank you, Marie Sandberg

I think we should cull more deer (since only 30% of the relocated deer survive) and prepare the venison for the food banks or sell it. We still have a problem with deer on our property eating plants even though the situation has improved.

More deer removal. We have a heard that frequently walks through our yard. We’ve almost hit them numerous times on Scenic Drive. They eat everything!

There are still deer that come into my yard. I would like the program continued and the number of deer to decrease.

The deer were moved out of our area a couple of years ago, but some deer remained, that population has increased and the presence of deer in our yards is again becoming problematic.

No change

We enjoy seeing deer in a large grassy area behind our townhouse, adjacent to Riverside Country Club Golf Course, and the neighbors I've talked to have similar feelings. The mature landscaping can handle their grazing, but the smaller veg. garden area has a high fence to keep them out.

Yes (please give details below)

If there were Animal Control people or Humphries Archery people out behind our place killing deer it would be VERY OBJECTIONABLE!

Not sure if the program is having much effect. At our home, we continue to have deer come and forage in our yard.

I understand the safety issues, and also the gardening issues--particularly with my beans! However, there is a great deal of joy to be gained by having wildlife in our midst. Since we live close to the mountain it may be that I expect the deer more than I would further into town .

I am surprised the live trap survival method is so low. That is disappointing.

On a personal basis, I am happy to have deer, and willing to sacrifice beans. I can buy beans at Macey's, I can't replace the deer.
