Default Parma, NY

Can anyone tell what Parma, NY is like? Family oriented, decent shopping? Any insight would be great! Thanks.

Pretty rural and open. Not fun to travel through in the winter because of the proximity to the lake, many N-S routes and the openness leads to big snow drifts across the roads.

Minimal shopping in Parma itself (and the village of Hilton). A little grocery store, a few restaurants and a craft store mainly. Fairly convenient to the commercial corridor of Greece (~15 minutes depending where in Parma) which has pretty much every kind of big box store you might need.

Parma is a cute little town, I think it is definately family oriented. Like Rochacha said its not far from Greece. I'm in school to be a teacher, and did a semester at Hilton Villiage Elementary and it is a great school! The Parma library is a great library too.

Thank-you for your responses. It is hard to find anything about Parma on the internet and we are coming in to buy a house so it is nice to have a little input!

You might have more luck if you look up Hilton, NY. That is the village that resides in the town of Parma, and the mailing address too I believe.

lived there since 1979.

what exactly are you looking for?

the property taxes are relatively low, the highway dept. does an excellent job keeping the streets clean and clear, and the houses vary in prices depending which area you choose.

my biggest complaint is the town doesn't do much about barking dogs, and caters to those who have dog kennels. i battled one neighbor for 15 years until he finally moved. some politics there, but i won't get into it here.

also, there are no sewars so everyone has a septic system, and the clay soil in many parts creates some standing water issues. our back yards gets flooded every spring, and we have asked the town to help with little results.

family oriented? what did you mean by that? the town hall offers events year round for the family. they have a several acres where they hold various events.
