Cover of the Parma Town Center Strategic Master PlanThe Parma Town Center Strategic Master Plan was adopted by Parma City Council on February 18, 2020.

The goal of this process was to expand upon the framework outlined in the Mayor’s Town Center Task Force and use these recommendations to help create a thriving, diverse, accessible, and cohesive downtown district with connections to the community and the surrounding neighborhoods. The Town Center Strategic Master Plan is a long-term guide for the City Center and is meant to aid future development opportunities and decisions.

County Planning facilitated the planning process by bringing together data, community leaders, citizens, and public institutions to craft a plan for action.

The Master Plan is the community’s plan. As such, public input was collected throughout the planning process, including at three public meetings. Additionally, the Steering Committee–which included Parma residents, business owners, stakeholders, and community leaders, helped develop and refine the content of the Plan.
