PARMA, Ohio -- Parma Mayor Tim DeGeeter’s third State of the City speech has been scheduled for Feb. 24, 2014 at the new Snow Road Branch of the Cuyahoga County Public Library. The mayor will deliver the speech in the new, state-of-the-art, 400-seat auditorium at the library; the address is scheduled for 7 p.m.

The Mayor has taken the speech “on the road” for the last two years, delivering his first one at the GrafTech Corporation and this year’s at Parma Community General Hospital. After the Mayor was treated to a sneak peek of the Snow Branch last month, he decided the new library is a perfect fit for the 2014 speech.

The Snow Branch officially opens this Saturday, Dec. 7 at a 5:30 p.m. grand opening celebration.

“We are so proud of the ways in which we are moving Parma forward,” the Mayor said, “and we have these two new beautiful libraries in our community. The auditorium is a beautiful space and we are so appreciative of our partnership with the Parma libraries.”

DeGeeter’s speech will encompass a review of a busy 2013 in which, among other things, the Shoppes at Parma began reconstruction, two Parma Library branches became reality, and a sister city relationship was formed with Lviv in the Ukraine. The address will also map out continued efforts and plans to continue to move the city forward and increase the quality of life for Parma residents.

“We are thrilled that Mayor DeGeeter asked to use the auditorium for his speech,” said Parma Snow Branch Manager Stacey Boycik. “It’s a wonderful reflection on the partnership that the Parma Libraries have with the City. We are looking forward to hosting it.”
