Sometime during the week of the 5th through the 11th of Feb. or the following week. They will be applying two applications. After the 1st week of March they will fertilize, aerate, and reseed the turf.  The next step in the process will be to fence off the field.

The sports field is located at the western intersection of Meridian Avenue and Oakglen Way in TJ Martin Park.

UPDATE:  Mar 23rd, the soccer fields have been closed off and the spraying will begin.
