Artificial turf is made of a plastic-like material that allows water to drain into the ground. Lawrence city commissioners went against a staff recommendation and agreed on Tuesday to “grandfather in” more than 20,000 square feet of artificial turf that was installed contrary to city code at a west Lawrence apartment complex. On a 4-1 vote, city commissioners said a development group led by Lawrence businessman Thomas Fritzel could keep the synthetic turf that was installed at the Tuckaway Apartments at Frontier, which is near Sixth and Frontier.
