This is a very nice rural community that I hope never gets over-developed! We need more nature in this world.

Parma is such a nice little town! If you want to live in a safe quiet neighborhood with good ice cream this is the place to go!
Parma is a very small and rural town with a tight knit community, everyone knows everyone. You feel very welcomed and make lots of friends and neighbors.
