After hearing a number of people ask me about what is going on in Market Square in regards to the lawn, I contacted the City of Knoxville and received an immediate answer. Mr. Mayshark, a communications liaison public information officer, stated the following.
“Dan, I got a message that you asked about the lawn sodding on Market Square. David Brace tells me we currently do that twice a year, once in spring and once in fall, to maintain the groundcover there. As the only green space on the Square, that lawn gets heavy use.”
