Service Area 1 consists of 44 employees and covers an area mainly from Neyland Drive on the South to Woodland Avenue on the North; and from Western Plaza on the West to Hall of Fame on the east. Service Area 1 also includes all of downtown and the Central Business District (CBID). They deliver all citizen public services (brush & leaf removal, street sweeping, right-of way mowing, pothole patching, snow removal, etc.) on pre-determined scheduled routes. In addition, they also perform all the inside curb sweeping and mow/trim work for all of the City of Knoxville.

This area also consists of a night shift responsible for all downtown maintenance. This provides the citizens quality services with minimal inconvenience to the downtown during prime business hours. In addition to routine maintenance activities, they also perform all garbage collection on a nightly basis.

Due to the pedestrian level in downtown Market Square there is also a specialized crew responsible for downtown and Market Square during daytime hours. Some of the maintenance includes garbage collection, litter control, and fountain maintenance.

Lastly, Service Area 1 also assists Special Events with all set-up activities. From the Dogwood Arts Festival to Rossini Festival to Christmas lights, Service Area 1 are the people behind the scenes that help make all events a success.
