- Mayor Karl Dean and the Metro Council
- United States of America
Nashville Mayor Karl Dean has announced he is closing the Nashville Fairgrounds and Speedway. This will displace the flea market and vendors; close the racetrack forever; and leave no place to hold the Tennessee State Fair. Mayor Dean has said the land is more valuable if he can pave over it and develop the 120 acres into a dense mix-use development, yet has not backed this idea up with any concrete plans.
