Before the heavy spring rains begin, Parma City Council, the mayor’s administrative staff and representatives from area agencies will talk to residents about how they are working together to address flooding and storm-water management in Parma. The fifth annual Water Summit will be Thursday, March 24, 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Parma City Hall Council Chamber, 6611 Ridge Road, Parma.

Residents are encouraged to attend the free event. The open forum is designed to educate residents, answer their questions and address their concerns about storm-water management. Cuyahoga County Public Works, Northeast Ohio Regional Sewer District, Cleveland Water and West Creek Conservancy will have representatives at the summit.

“We understand that storm-water management requires a regional approach with all stakeholders. It is important for us, as public officials, to inform the people of what is being done to address flooding issues,” said Ward 4 Councilwoman Kristin Saban, who organized the Water Summit with Ward 5 Councilman Allan Divis. “City Council is encouraging residents in all nine wards to attend this event. We are hoping that the Water Summit will be a forum for residents to feel comfortable engaging in a proactive way.”
