Urban Deer Control Plan

The presence of deer within Centerville City has increased significantly over the last decade. While the deer are a beautiful presence of nature, they have also become a danger to human safety, as well as their own, when entering roads, public property and private property. Likewise, the feeding habits of the deer population have become a destructive nuisance on private and public property, creating a problem for landscaping, gardening, and recreational space within our community.

Deer Control Plan

Centerville City in partnership with the Utah Division of Wildlife Resources (DWR) has developed an URBAN DEER CONTROL PLAN. This plan outlines the various methods of removal and the time periods they are allowed. To read the full plan, click here.

If you need deer removed from your property, please fill out the Release Agreement and contact the Police Department (801-292-8441) to discuss your options.
