Parma Mayor Will Give State Of The City At Watershed Stewardship Center
Parma Mayor Tim DeGeeter will give his 2020 State of the City address at 6 p.m., Tuesday, Feb. 25. The presentation is open to the public, and parking is free. Continuing the trend started when he entered office in 2012, the mayor will highlight a community partner by taking his address outside of Parma City Hall. This year, the address will be delivered at Cleveland Metroparks Watershed Stewardship Center in West Creek Reservation, 2277 West Ridgewood Drive, Parma. The presentation will be in the multipurpose room.
“The Watershed Stewardship Center is dedicated to scientific research and promoting sustainable action. Its science-based programs encourage teachers, students, professionals and the public to learn about storm-water management methods,” said Mayor Tim DeGeeter. “In addition to educating the public, the center is enhancing and protecting our urban watersheds through innovative community programming, as well as encouraging regional participation in watershed issues. Its key partners include the Northeast Ohio Regional Sewer District and West Creek Conservancy. Both of those organizations work closely with our city,” DeGeeter added.
Past State of the City speeches were held at Cuyahoga Community College’s Western Campus, Sheet Metals Workers Local 33, Parma’s General Motors plant, University Hospital’s Parma Medical Center and Cuyahoga County Public Library. “Our administration’s approach has always been to combine common sense and hard work to produce real results,” DeGeeter said. “We’re proud to share some of our positive results at this year’s State of the City address.”
