Parma And Cuyahoga County Still Seeking Input On Town Center Master Plan

The city and the Cuyahoga County Planning Commission are still seeking public input through online surveys to help them craft a master plan for the town center concept. In August, officials wrapped up the last of three public meetings over the past nine months to solicit feedback from residents on their ideas surrounding what the city has branded as the town center – the area around the Ridge Road and West Ridgewood Drive intersection and the Day Drive corridor. While the public meetings seeking input for crafting the master plan are over, the county planning commission through mid-September is looking for additional residential input via web surveys, which can be found at www.surveymonkey.com/r/ParmaPM3 and www.countyplanning.us/projects/parma-master-plan/ Throughout the public input process, residents have been invited to complete the online surveys. “We truly want the public’s input as we try to harness this vital part of our city where tens of millions of dollars have been invested in The Shoppes at Parma, the UH Parma Medical Center and the Cuyahoga County Public Library’s Powers Boulevard branch,” Parma Mayor Tim DeGeeter said. “All of the pieces are in place to make this a real focal point.” Of the surveys filled out at public meetings or online, residents have submitted nearly 400 surveys and about an equal number of comments.

Fair Trade Matters

According to the Fair Trade Federation, fair trade is “an approach to business and to development based on dialogue, transparency, and respect that seeks to create greater equity in the international trading system. Fair trade supports farmers and craftspeople in developing countries who are socially and economically marginalized. These producers often face steep hurdles in finding markets and customers for their goods.”

Passage Of Renewal Levy Critical For Firefighters, Paramedics

Parma is seeking to pass a 2-mill renewal levy this November that supports the city’s fire department.
 “This five-year renewal levy, which is not a tax increase, will not only help the fire department’s operations, but provide our firefighters and paramedics with the latest equipment and technology they need to save lives,” Parma Mayor Tim DeGeeter said. “I’m optimistic voters this fall will support the levy because they understand how critical it is for our city. Our residents also know our department provides great service while being responsible with our tax dollars,” DeGeeter added.

Parma City Council approved the measure for the fall ballot because the current levy expires at the end of 2018. In September, the Cuyahoga County Board of Elections will provide an issue number for when the levy appears on the fall ballot. “Each year, the fire department responds to more emergency calls,” Parma Fire Chief Mike Lasky said. “Passage of the renewal levy is important in helping us continue to provide quality service to our residents as we keep up with increased demands.” In 2017, the fire department responded to 11,782 incidents, a jump from 2016’s 11,062 calls. Five years ago, the department had 9,839. “Even with these increases, our response time to emergencies exceeds the national average,” Lasky said. “The renewal levy will help us maintain our high standard of service.”

Parmadale Demolition Will Make Way For Greenspace, Public Park Development And Watershed Conservation

The plan to redevelop and re-envision the former Parmadale Orphanage took a major step forward in July when Cuyahoga County awarded $1.35 million to demolish 13 old dormitories at the site. The project will clear nearly 80 acres for greenspace, public park development and watershed conservation. It will also remove a significant amount of impervious surface, decreasing stress on local waterways and infrastructure. The funding includes the demolition of four blighted Parma properties at 7259 Ridge Road, 11599 Kader Avenue, 4418 Pershing Avenue and 7407 Dorothy Avenue. "The repurposing of the former Parmadale campus first came on our radar in 2016 when we learned of its potential sale," said West Creek Conservancy Executive Director Derek Schafer.

A Tribute ~ Traveling Vietnam Wall

The AVTT Traveling Vietnam Wall was on display at the Cuyahoga Community College's Western Campus the weekend of June 28 - July 1, 2018. With temperatures soaring in the upper 90's, I viewed the Livestream video from the comfort of my home. In spite of the oppressive heat, hundreds of visitors arrived to pay tribute to the 58,318 soldiers, casualties of war. As my eyes gazed across 360-foot-long wall, I was reminded of the two memorial plaques displayed at the entrance of my high school as a tribute to those many students who lost their lives in the Vietnam war. I knew these boys. They were my classmates, my friends. I remember their smiles. Their voices now fall silent at the wall. The impact of seeing the thousands of names left me overwhelmed.

Asset Corner #104

AUGUST’s Asset Category: INSPIRATION. Work together; build a network of support to make a difference for young people Adults expect a lot of young people: to learn to treat people fairly and with kindness, act responsibly, get good grades, and become successful. Of course, young people can’t learn everything they need to reach their goals without help from parents and other caring adults. Adults also expect a lot of themselves. Consistently modeling appropriate behavior, teaching values, and at the same time, striving for your own goals, can be challenging. That’s why it’s important to work together. If you know a parent with a troubled teenager or a teacher with a failing student, ask them how you can help. If you are having difficulty connecting with a young person, be sure to ask for the help you need. Sometimes there are concrete things people can do to help; other times listening is all that’s needed.

The Superhero Project

Craig Lindsley a Parma Area Fine Arts Council board member, recently told me of a project he is participating in. Graphic artists, comic book creators and digital illustrators are volunteering their time and talents to work with children and teens that have serious medical issues. Children facing serious medical problems have many challenges and medical personnel often refer to them as superheros. This project hopes to help them face those challenges. The participating youth complete a questionnaire involving questions that help to describe them in a superhero persona. Questions like, what they would stand for, how would they make the world better and the type of costumes they'd like to wear. Using information obtained from those questions, the artists create a unique, one of a kind superhero character specific to that child. The families receive a 11” by 17” print, plus digital copy to share or duplicate, and a bio of the artist. Craig's first assignment was a teen who had suffered a stroke. The Superhero Project is provided to families free of charge. For more information on this amazing project go to www.sidekicksohio.org.

Parma's Fourth Of July Parade Is One Of The City's Biggest Events Of The Year

Throngs of people are expected to line Ridge Road to watch Parma’s annual Fourth of July Parade – one of the city’s biggest events each year. Marching bands, local organizations, and public officials will be part of the more than 1,500 participants who will trek the one-and-a-half mile parade route, which starts at Snow Road and ends at West Ridgewood Drive at The Shoppes at Parma. “It’s a rite of passage for so many of our kids,” Parma Mayor Tim DeGeeter said. “I enjoy seeing them run as close as possible to the parade route as they grab as much candy as they can – or their parents allow.” Said DeGeeter: “But perhaps the best aspect of the parade is watching and hearing the bands march down Ridge Road. This is just a great event, and I truly appreciate the community spirit that makes the parade what it is today.”

SHOW KIDS YOU CARE: PAMPER THEM. July’s Asset Category: CONSTRUCTIVE USE OF TIME. All work and no play can be boring and stressful. The pace of everyday life varies depending on the activities young people participate in. These fluctuations are normal, even healthy. As long as young people don’t consistently have too much to do or not enough to do, they’re right on track. Problems arise when the balance begins to tip too far to one side or the other. Too much involvement can lead to stress or anxiety. Too little involvement can be a sign of depression or isolation. Ensure that young people constructively use their time for both fun and learning.
