Script sign could be coming to Parma, similar to Cleveland script sign

We've all seen the Cleveland script signs. They're popular among tourists, but we Clevelanders love a good Cleveland sign picture for our Instagram and Facebook feeds, too.

Now Parma is jumping on the script sign bandwagon.

Parma City Council President Sean Brennan is spearheading a program to raise funds to place a Parma script sign somewhere in the city.

Brennan said his family loves the Cleveland script signs, and his many visits to them inspired him to bring one to Parma.

Brennan contacted Signature Sign Company, the same company that made the Cleveland signs.

“The folks at Cleveland Sign were very excited by my request and have produced a really exciting script Parma sign rendition,” Brennan said.

Now he's looking to get support from the community. The next steps include finding a location for the sign, to which he is looking to the community for suggestions, and raising $15,000 for the project.

Brennan hopes this is just the first of several Parma script signs.

“I truly believe the signs can help prime economic development,” Brennan said. “I envision people coming out to visit a sign, take a few snapshots, then do a little shopping and have a meal."

A GoFundMe page has been started to help raise the funds necessary to bring the sign to Parma.

A survey has been set up to take suggestions on where the sign should be placed.
