“We’re hiring a contractor for trash pickup and will have a person go by and check the property regularly,” Peter Batten, a principal with Spectrum, told the Annandale Blog March 28. “Quite frankly, we didn’t realize the trash would accumulate so fast. We will have a management system in place to manage the trash this week.” He also said he plans to “work with the police to make sure unlawful activity is not taking place.”

Spectrum is currently working on the site plan, which needs to be approved by the county, and has submitted a traffic management plan to the Virginia Department of Transportation, which includes new turn lanes at the Washington Drive and Charles Street intersections with Route 7 and calls for moving the access point on Washington Drive closer to Route 7.
