Ron Mottl Sr. Avenue
Soon you will be able to walk or drive on Ron Mottl Sr. Ave. - the part of York Rd from Independence Blvd. to the Southern border of Cuyahoga Community College. Mr. Mottl was at City Hall recently to receive proclamations from Parma City Council, presented by co-sponsors of the resolution, Brian Brochetti and Allan Divis, and also a proclamation from Cuyahoga County Council, presented by Parma's representative, Scott Tuma. Mr. Mottl was first elected to Parma City Council in 1960 and also served as City Council President, in the Ohio House of Representatives and the Ohio Senate. He also served as a U.S. Congressman in the U.S. House of Representatives from 1975-1982. He served on the Parma School Board and as its president. A veteran of the U.S. Army and Army Reserves, he was also a star athlete in football, basketball and baseball, which led to his being a charter member of the Parma Senior High School Athletic Hall of Fame. Street signs will be made to replace the York Rd. signs on the appropriate parts of the street. Congratulations, Mr. Mottl.
Communications Director for the City of Parma
