Great Job Sully Station II!
Here is our progress on the Amendment voting to date.
Thank to everyone who has voted! Please ask your neighbors if they have voted yet and encourage those that have not (only if they are owners) to do so. We are off to a great start and we need the votes to keep coming in. If everyone helps out then we can get to our goal faster.
Proposed Amendments to the Declaration
SULLY STATION II COMMUNITY ASSOCIATION
May 15, 2017
TO: Sully Station II Community Association Lot Owners
FROM: Glenn Martin, President and the Board of Trustees (Board)
SUBJECT: Proposed Amendments to the Declaration
BALLOT BY MAIL IS ENCLOSED FOR YOUR SIGNATURE
Sully Station II Community Association (SSIICA) governing documents have changed very little since the original Declaration was recorded by the developer, Kettler Scott in 1988. In order to bring Documents into compliance with current laws, address inconsistencies and ambiguities, the Board is proposing a change for two relatively minor and non-controversial Declaration amendments.
Use of Technology (New Article XL Section 9). Tracking with State statute, this will allow the SSIICA to use modern technology to communicate with owners and allow owners to use, for example, email to vote.
Purchasers of Homes/One-Time Owners Assessment (Article V, Section 5(a)). This will change the amount of the capital contribution when a home is purchased from the 1988 amount of $75.00 to $225.00 (adjusted for inflation) and will apply for all future purchasers, not just purchasers of new construction. Depending on the real estate market and economic conditions, this change could result in significant funds for SSIICA. This would not affect current owners — only those purchasing a future home/lot.
Both changes will help keep the Annual General Assessment lower by reducing our costs and/or having our requirement for a one-time assessment apply to all new Lot purchasers.
These Amendments are ideal to adopt using the Ballot by Mail process allowed under our Governing Documents. The Board has decided to use Ballot by Mail to avoid homeowner attendance at a meeting or visiting a polling place.
While no formal meeting to vote on the amendments will be scheduled, the Amendment to the Declaration must be approved by a majority of at least two-thirds (2/3) of our Lot Owners. This mailing and request to submit a ballot is the first phase. If unsuccessful, you will continue to receive additional notices/follow-ups to obtain the two-thirds (2/3) needed.
Questions — The Board gives owners an opportunity to comment and raise concerns every month at the Board meeting. In person, written comments, phone calls and emails will also be addressed by SSIICA Management at the Community Center, (703) 266-2020, email@example.com, or by mail to SSIICA, 5501 Sully Park Drive, Centerville, VA 20120-5426.
SIGN YOUR BALLOT IMMEDIATELY — and mail it in the return envelope provided. Do not delay. Avoid additional money being spent by the SSIICA to continually follow up with Lot Owners to obtain votes from two-thirds of our Lot Owners.
The Board hopes you will agree this is a very worthwhile change for all SSIICA Members and would like to thank you in advance for your vote.
Very truly yours,
Glenn Martin, President

New Construction Coming
The Sully Station area has some new construction coming off Westfield Blvd. Details and links are below:
Wegmans on Westfield
Developer – Regency Centers
This is part of a larger development call Commonwealth Center which includes restaurants and other retail space.
While you are salivating at the thought of shopping there, this has been long in the making but I have seen recent activity suggesting construction will eminent. Plans were first presented to Fairfax County Board of Supervisors in January 2015. Staff Plans are dated July 2015. The Staff Report, a Regency Centers’ Brochure of the Commonwealth Center, and two new articles are available below.
Commonwealth Center will include some 180K sq. ft of retail spaces.
Wegmans Supermarket with comprise of 140K sq. ft.
Other Retail, Bank, and Shopping Center will comprise another 43K sq.ft.
The Preserve at Westfield
Developer – Ackridge
The Board was presented development plans initially in early 2014 and then after plans were finalized in November. The final plans were presented at our Dec 18, 2014 meeting.
The Preserve is currently under construction most visibly seen to the east across from the Sully Government Station. The Staff Report is available below.
612-670 Multifamily residents (depending on which plan you look at)
159 Single Family Town Homes
15K sq ft retail space in four commercial Bldgs.
Access via two entrances on Stonecroft.
Lidl Grocery Store – Chantilly
The Board of Supervisors said “Wilkommen” to German discount grocer Lidl on Tuesday when it signed off on plans to build a 30,000 square foot store at the Chantilly Crossing Shopping Center.
This store will be its first in Fairfax as the grocery chain enters the U.S market. Located on a five-acre empty field, the future store will be built on the southeast corner of Lee Road and Chantilly Crossing Lane. The board’s zoning approval also allows the company to build an 18,000-square-foot multi-tenant, retail building next to its grocery store. Both buildings will join the shopping center’s existing restaurants, two extended-stay hotels, drive-through bank, and a Costco and Target.
As part of its approved plan, Lidl will build a new entrance from Lee Road into the shopping center. Shoppers would be able to enter traveling north or south on Lee Road, but they would only be able to turn right onto the northbound lanes to exit.
Lidl’s store will feature contemporary architecture, while its 30,000 square foot print is larger than the grocer’s average 10,000 square feet in Europe.
Beyond the expected name and store brand basics, the company also sells clothes, appliances and household goods in its stores.
Annual Operating Budget
Dear Sully Station II Members:
The Sully Station II Community Association Board of Trustees has approved the
2017 Annual Operating Budget. The Board and Management have held several meetings, including a presentation for residents, where each line item in the budget was discussed with the primary objective of controlling costs. The resulting 2017 Budget requires a small increase to cover expenses not offset by ongoing cost saving activities.
The following is a summary of the budget by category:
A detailed breakdown of the budget is available at:
The following is a breakdown of the monthly assessment rates:
|SINGLE FAMILY||$81.45||$83.20||2.15% Increase|
|ESTATE HOMES||$128.50||$131.80||2.57% Increase|
The slight increase in assessment rate for all segments of the community is primarily driven by inflation increases included in contracts and by the contribution to Reserves. Annual Reserve Contributions are determined by the Reserve Study which was conducted in 2016 by an independent contractor certified by the state of Virginia. The Reserve Study serves as a detailed plan for the replacement of Association assets.
FirstService Residential Services will be ordering the Assessment Coupon Books for each Member of the Association that is not currently participating in the Automatic Debit program. The intent is to have all coupon books received by the Members by the end of December 2016. When your coupon book arrives, please review it for accuracy. The Board of Trustees encourages you to consider using the Automatic Debit program to reduce Association costs of printing and mailing the coupon books each year. The registration form is available at:
If you have any questions, please contact Rob Martin, General Manager at the Association office. Rob may be reached at 703-266-2020 or by email at Robert.Martin@fsresidential.com. The Assistant Manager, Luigi Solloso can be reached at 703-266-2044 or by email at Luigi.Solloso@fsresidential.com.
