Urban Wildlife
Human/Wildlife Coexistence
In an effort to maintain a healthy ecosystem the City has a wildlife program that provides the framework for human/wildlife coexistence. The program includes a regulatory element and a wildlife hazing program that were developed using the City Council accepted wildlife management plan.

The three core principles of the program are:

  1. Wildlife should not be fed by humans
  2. Pets should be kept indoors, on a leash or safely penned if left outside
  3. Wildlife behavior can be modified to reduce negative human/wildlife interactions
