Tips To Attract Bees, And Butterflies

Parma Heights has created several "pocket parks" throughout the city. Instead of piles of mulch and empty benches, these spaces could feed and shelter bees, birds and butterflies. Anytime I've taken a break when walking the city, I've never seen anything with wings, anything with feathers or anything with six (or more) legs!

Flooding Relief Projects Underway In Parma Heights

Basement flooding has been an issue for many residents in Parma Heights, and we are actively working on multiple solutions to help alleviate these issues. After three long years of working with the federal government, the City of Parma Heights received official approval for the Nathan Hale Retention Basin Project. We hope to break ground within the next six months once the bidding process is completed. Work will begin on the relining of a portion of the Blossom Avenue sanitary sewer line in order to reduce inflow and infiltration of stormwater into the sanitary sewer system, and the city is partnering with the Northeast Ohio Regional Sewer District for the construction of a detention basin behind Maplewood Road. These projects should help reduce basement flooding for both Parma Heights and Parma residents in that area of our cities. We are fortunate to have great partners, like the Northeast Ohio Regional Sewer District, who assist us with projects that benefit our community as well as surrounding communities. We will continue to fight for flooding relief and solutions to help our community.

Among the many essential neighborhood institutions serving these communities was the theater. In the theater, immigrants could navigate their evolving national identities as they adjusted to life in a new country. For some, it allowed them to cling to their old-world heritage, while others used the theater to explore new-world realities. In this talk, Dr. Peter Graff will outline the history of these vibrant institutions and explore their importance to the people who brought them to life. In-person program. Registration required.

Some stores will be revealed on the Facebook page  "Parma Heights 2ND Fridays" That's egg-sactly right!  Ask friends, neighbors or some bunny for suggestions on the egg-citing independently-owned gems where you live and don't just hop over there and race through, but take the time and a little bit of effort to get to know the real heart and soul of Pearl Road, the mom & pop shops and family-operated favorites of the community, and you'll find a basket full of egg-citement.
