Parma Mayor to Deliver ‘State of the City’ Address at Western Campus
Tri-C selected for event to highlight expansion projects underway at the campus
Parma Mayor Timothy J. DeGeeter will deliver his 2019 State of the City address at the Western Campus of Cuyahoga Community College (Tri-C®) to showcase the work being done at the College site.
The address will take place at 6 p.m. Monday, Feb. 25. The mayor said he chose Western Campus for his address to highlight expansion work underway at the site, located at 11000 Pleasant Valley Road.
Current projects include:
- The addition of a STEM Center with lab and classroom space dedicated to courses in science, technology, engineering and mathematics.
- The creation of Simulation Village at the KeyBank Public Safety Training Center to elevate first responder training.
- An expansion of the Advanced Automotive Technology Center to grow the in-demand program.
Voter approval of a bond issue request in November 2017 put these plans in motion. Passage of Issue 61 raised $227.5 million for the College to add instructional space, keep pace with changing technology and address decades of wear and tear on buildings.
DeGeeter said the projects demonstrate Tri-C’s ongoing commitment to training today’s workforce and providing affordable, quality education to meet the needs of Northeast Ohio residents.
The State of the City Address is open to the public, with free parking available at the campus. DeGeeter has delivered his annual address from the site of a key community stakeholder every year since taking office in 2012.
