With the test shots, volunteers ranked what they saw on a scale of 1 to 4, he said: 1 represented if they saw fewer than 30 percent of the test shots. 2 represented 30-60 percent. 3 was 60-90 percent. 4 represented 90-100 percent.
The locations he listed “were scored 4’s by our volunteers,” Saurber said.
Meanwhile, “Some of the locations that I thought would be great for the fairgrounds ended up not being good, namely the North End ballfields, Crawford Woods Elementary,” and the city’s parking lot at Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard and High Street, Saurber said.
“So had we gone with the fairgrounds, we would have had great visibility from Garfield Middle School and Fairwood Elementary, but at that point, we’re not offering much more space than we would have had downtown.”
