Neighbor Relations

 

Neighbor Timeline 1940-1987

Certainly, no one in the community has closer contact with Whitman Mission than the neighbors. This administration's relationship with the neighbors reflects how the park is perceived and predicts, to a certain extent, how successful its programs will be. Neighbor relations is a very subjective topic given that each party feels their point of view is justified whenever a debate or controversy arises. Although Whitman Mission's relationship with its neighbors has at times been rocky, overall, it has a good history. The following lists park neighbors and their approximate dates:
