PARMA, Ohio – Parma Mayor Tim DeGeeter has announced a follow-up Public Input Forum regarding the work of his Town Center Task Force. The Forum will be held on Wednesday, August 6
th at 6:30 p.m. at the Parma Library, 6996 Powers Blvd.

The Task Force has met several times over the past eight months to discuss the future of Parma’s Town Center. The geographic area of the Town Center includes The Shoppes at Parma, Stearns Farm, the Day Drive corridor, Parma City Hall, The Parma Library, Byers Field and the University Hospitals Parma Medical Center.

The Task Force has had one public input meeting and now, in this second one, is ready to present new findings and ideas and gather more public opinion. “This is what it’s all about,” said Mayor DeGeeter. “The Town Center is for the residents, and we want them to be involved in this process of bringing it to life.”

Cuyahoga County Planning Commission Executive Director Glenn Coyne serves as facilitator of the Task Force.

The Task Force is comprised of many different Parma stakeholders that fall within the footprint of the Town Center. Among these are the Parma City School District, Parma Hospital, Proud of Parma, the Parma Area Chamber of Commerce, Parma Library and the West Creek Conservancy, Phillips-Edison, First Energy and RTA. Parma’s Ward Eight City Councilman Scott Tuma, whose ward encompasses the Town Center, is also on the panel.
