Even as I wrote in Height and Milwaukee Avenue (Part I) (now updated), that “it took several sessions just to get the question right so that it adequately reflected the sentiments of participants concerning height,” the responses didn’t seem quite right, but I brushed off the feeling.
After recently reviewing the sessions once again though, I noticed that I had not shared the final iteration of the responses, but the one prior to the response options having been ultimately revised. Below is the final and more nuanced breakdown of desired height:
What average height do you envision for new buildings along Milwaukee Avenue?
The difference here (for comparison purposes I have included the original graphic at the bottom of this post) is that workshop participants did not have to choose between one- to two-story buildings and three- to four-story buildings, for example, when their desire may be for a finer distinction like two- to three-story buildings.
Given these finer distinctions, while still a plurality, only 37.5% of workshop participants envision three- to four-story buildings along Milwaukee Avenue, and 22.5% only see two- to three-story buildings along Milwaukee Avenue, a distinction that was not previously available.
