Mission Statement


The mission of the Parma Observer is to attract, articulate, and amplify civic intelligence and community good will in the area of Parma, Parma Heights, Seven Hills and beyond.

Our goal is to help Parma residents and neighbors learn as much as possible about the city. In its efforts to know Parma par excellence, the Parma Observer will illuminate the many facets of culture, arts, business, education, religion, and lifestyle this diverse city has to offer.

The Parma Observer will capture life in Parma, Parma Heights and Seven Hills past and present, imagine its promising future, and celebrate its rich urban history.

The Parma Observer shall provide a sounding board for charities, institutions, schools, children, families, events, and City Hall. We intend to open a space for long running dialogue with everyone who works, lives, or plays in the area.

In this twenty-first century urban experiment, the Parma Observer will strive to construct for the city an open and unbiased ensemble of white papers for mapping community solutions, advancing responsible economic development and sustainability strategies, and tracking results.

Finally, the Parma Observer will invite the entire community to celebrate the vibrant mosaic of culture, nature, and history.
