Parma is located on the Snake River basin plain that crosses, from east to west, the south end of the State of Idaho. Parma is on the west end of the valley at an average elevation of about 2,231 feet above sea level and is near the confluence of the Boise and Snake Rivers to the southwest. This is considered a high desert area with most of the moisture occurring and collecting in the surrounding mountains and then being transferred into the valley by creeks, streams and rivers. These waterways provide the irrigation water used by farmers across the whole south end of the state. The Lewis and Clark Expedition passed through the Parma area in 1805 on their way to the west coast. In 1811, the Wilson Price Hunt party passed through exploring portions of the then future Oregon Trail. In 1836, the very first "white" settlement in southwest Idaho was established near Parma by the Hudson Bay fur trading company. This settlement was a small fort, called Fort Boise and was located about four miles southwest of present day Parma at the confluence of the Boise and Snake Rivers.
Parma is part of a river valley that runs across southern Idaho at a relatively low elevation. This is a high desert area of low precipitation in the valleys and high rates of sunshine. Most snow fall occurs in the surrounding mountain ranges from November to February which fills the rivers, creeks and streams that run to the valley in the spring time as it melts. The valley does get some snow but on average it is light and infrequent.
There over twenty AM and FM radio stations located in the Boise Valley that reaches Parma that includes multiple NPR stations.
This area has full access to traditional, cable, dish and online TV stations with Boise being regional communication hub for most TV and radio outlets. Fiber optic lines are being extended to residential areas to provide the highest speed data transfers available.
