Tragedy Strikes Sully Station II

Dear Sully Station II Residents

The Sully Station II Board of Trustees is extremely grateful for the outpouring of support for our fellow residents that are victims of the fire yesterday. The 10 townhomes are uninhabitable and have been cordoned off with security fencing. The Board has established a GoFundMe account – https://www.gofundme.com/sully-station-ii-community-ass039n for donations for the families displaced by the fire yesterday.  We are also seeking a volunteer Donation Coordinator and ad hoc committee members to provide one source to track donation options and communicate those resources to the families. The committee will assist the Board and Management in mapping out a way ahead to coordinate all the donation offers.

The fire investigation and rebuilding process is expected to take several months so we need people that can contribute to this process in the coming weeks.

If you were unable to attend tonight’s meeting and would like to volunteer, please contact the onsite office at office@sully2.com.

Thank you again for all your support.

Sincerely,
Sully Station II CA Board of Trustees

Amendments to the Declaration

Do you really want your month assessment to increase?  

If not, We Need Your Vote! Keep Monthly Payments Low!  In an effort to keep your monthly assessments low, the Board of Trustees has begun a door-to-door campaign to obtain the necessary ballots required for adoption of two proposed Amendments to our Declaration.   These Amendments are: Use of Technology, and Purchasers of Homes/One-Time Assessment. For the Amendments to become effective, they must be voted for by 2/3 of our Members. While we are slowly approaching the needed ballots, we are asking you to do your part and send in your ballot, if you have not already voted.

Campaigners are walking door-to-door to obtain ballots from units who have not submitted a ballot. You can preclude that knock at your door by completing and submitting your Ballot.   Click Here to download a ballot.  Complete the ballot, and take a picture or scan it and attach it to an email to: office@Sully2.com; or mail it to 5501 Sully Park Dr, Centreville, VA 20120-5426; or bring the signed ballot to the Community Center.

Members were sent a ballot package in a bright yellow envelope just after Memorial Day last year that included President Glenn Martin’s cover letter as well as the Ballot for your votes.

2018 Architectural Guidelines and Standards Approved

At the March 22, 2018 meeting, the Board of Trustees approved the 2018 Architectural Design Guidelines and Standards.

Policy Resolution No. 16 (2018 Architectural Guidelines and Standards) are posted for our Member on Connect.  The “2018 Guidelines” as well as the new Architectural Review Board Application are both posted under Documents on our website.

The 2018 Guidelines became effective on April 25, 2018.  They are the result of extensive efforts by the Architectural Review Board (ARB) over the past two years in coordination with Management and the Board of Trustees as well as Legal counsel.  The 2018 Guidelines supersede present architectural guidelines consolidating them into a single document for all units. This includes the Amended Sully Estate Design Standards which meet the Protective Covenants of the Amended and Restated Supplementary Declaration of Covenants and Restrictions for the Sully Estates cluster.  The annual unit inspections will be using these 2018 Guidelines so you might want to review them and take corrective action before the inspections begin.

Pool Rules and Regulations Revised

At the April 26, 2018, the Board of Trustees approved a revision of Policy Resolution No. 11 (Swimming Pool Rules).  The Policy is posted posted under Documents on our website.

The revision allows swimming in the lap lanes during the ten minute safety break which occurs at 50 minutes past each hour, as well as making some minor corrections to the previous revision.

Costco Chantilly Gas Station now Open.

The Costco Chantilly gas station opened April 25, 2018.  It was up and operating before we having a chance to take so photos.  It located at 14390 Chantilly Crossing Ln, Chantilly, VA  20151-2117. Station hours are: Mon-Fri. 6:00am – 9:30pm, Sat. 6:00am – 8:00pm, and Sun. 7:00am – 7:00pm

I-66 Outside the Beltway Widening Project

The Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) and the Express Mobility Partners (EMP) hosted a Design Public Hearing on Tuesday, Nov. 14, 2017 from 6:00pm to 8:30pm at the Stone Middle School Cafeteria.  Susan Shaw, VDOT Project Engineer, presented a project overview video and made a presentation providing an overview of this $3B 22.5 mile project from the Capital Beltway (I-495) to University Blvd in Gainesville.  This Multimodal project includes:

  • Two (2) Express Lanes in each direction
  • Three (3) general purpose lanes in each direction
  • Expanded bus routes
  • Bikeway, trail, and sidewalk improvements
  • 4, 000 new Park-and-Ride spaces
  • HOV-3 and transit access to Express Lanes
  • Safety and operational improvements at key interchanges, and smoother transitions at exits.

While the entire project will not be completed until December 2022, Sully Station II residents will see benefits of the project as early as 2020 when four stop lights on the Route 28 corridor are removed.  Also, there will be an overpass connecting Braddock and Walney Roads. Much more detail can be found on the Project’s website including the hearings material, an interactive Map (a tool which provides a visual overview of the project as a supplement to the design boards that were available during the public hearings), and much more information about the project.  To provide comment use the comment sheet.  Deadline for public comment is November 29, 2017.

Fairfax County Sully Ponds Retro-fit Project

Fairfax County will be retrofitting a couple of the Sully retention ponds.  They held a meeting on June 26, 2017 at Deer Park Elementary School. Here is the presentation they presented.  For location details click here.

As part of this project, Fairfax County Stormwater Planning Division informed us on November 3rd that in a couple weeks survey and geotechnical crews must return to the community to collect additional data from the retention ponds. The crews performing the task will be representing Engineering Consulting Services, LLC (ECS) and Connelly & Associates Drilling Services.   Field work is planned for two (2) days between 7 am and 9 pm. See the Stormwater Planning Division Letter to affected residents here.
