This project studied the events that took place during the site relocation process of a High School. A legal settlement concluded a local and regional fight between park advocates and a city on the exact placement of a high school on a piece of parkland. Narrative analysis was used to study the implications of the conflict between the City of Worcester and the Green Hill Park Coalition. Finally recommendations were made on ways to avoid conflicts such as this in Worcester.
