Parma Copies Cleveland, Gets Its Own Script Sign

Copying is the sincerest form of flattery, as Parma is proving with its soon-to-be-dedicated city script sign.

Cleveland is hardly the first to embrace the city name sign game (think Hollywood and Las Vegas), but the script signs, introduced by Destination Cleveland in 2016, have offered something unique for Northeast Ohio.

“The Cleveland signs have really boosted the cool-factor of Cleveland and I know the Parma sign will do the same for our community,” Parma City Council president Sean Brennan said in a statement.

Clearly, the suburbs are even noticing how the Cleveland tourism bureau's plan worked: Instagram-obsessed visitors and residents alike have flocked to the scenic spots in droves, as any quick search shows.

Cleveland currently has six script signs, which can be found at North Coast Harbor, Tremont, Edgewater Park, The Foundry in the Flats, Euclid Beach Park and, for those who can't wait to take a pic as soon as they land here, Cleveland Hopkins International Airport.

The brand new Parma sign, which was made by Signature Sign Company, the same business behind the Cleveland ones, is getting officially unveiled by the city Saturday at noon. Money for the new $15,000 sign were raised through the Parma Charitable Fund. The sign is located at Anthony Zielinski Park near the splash pad.
