2018 Annual Operating Budget
Dear Sully Station II Members,
The Sully Station II Community Association Board of Trustees has approved the 2018 Annual Operating Budget. The Board and Management have held several meetings, including a resident workshop, where each line item in the budget was discussed with the primary objective of controlling costs. The result is that the 2018 Budget requires a small increase to cover expenses not offset by ongoing cost saving activities. To view the 2018 Budget and Assessments please log into Connect.
Amendments to the Declaration
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 will bring ballots to units who have not submitted a ballot. However, to preclude a knock on your door, Click Here to download a ballot, which includes the full wording of the amendments. 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 which included President Glenn Martin’s cover letter as well as the Ballot for your votes.
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

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.
