Public Notice: Trespassing Issue on Green Spring Road/Meadows Property


There has been an increase in unauthorized visitors to the construction site on Green Spring Road and to the Meadows property: the site of the future retail development and sports park.  While curiosity is natural, this is an active construction site, full of potential hazards.  The site is posted with, “No Trespassing” signs and Green Spring Road has, “Road Closed” signs in two locations.

The police department will be monitoring these sites for violators and will take immediate and appropriate enforcement actions with violators.
