The City of Beachwood implemented a deer management program in partnership with the City of Shaker Heights this past season. The City of Shaker Heights is experienced in deer management and proved to be an exceptional strategic partner.
Under the provisions outlined in our deer management program that can be found on our website, the Ohio Department of Natural Resources issued a joint permit to our cities. The results of the program can also be found online. Because of their experience and track record, Precision Wildlife and their team was selected and were able to harvest the permitted number of deer, discretely, humanely and most of all, safely. We donated 2,800 pounds of venison to the food bank providing approximately 11,000 meals to people in need.
As outlined in our Deer Management program, we need to understand the reactions/concerns of our residents before we can determine how to proceed in the future. To that end, we have developed this residential questionnaire and appreciate your time and feedback. The deadline for completing this survey is May 15, 2023.
If you are unable to complete this survey online, please call the mayor's office 216-292-1901 and we will be happy to complete the survey on your behalf and will make sure your feedback is documented.
