Voting for Amendment Ballots Closed

SUBJECT:  Voting for Amendments to the Declaration ended July 31, 2018

On behalf of the Board of Trustees, we want to thank all of our Owners who submitted Ballots for the  two proposed Declaration Amendments. Those proposed Amendments were for the Purchasers of Homes/One-Time Owners Assessment (Article V, Section 5(a)), and Use of Technology (New Article XI, Section 9).

The Elections Committee is now recording the ballots and votes, validating the votes, and validating that Ballots are signed by Owners. After the validation, if each Amendment has the required two-thirds vote by our Owners, the next step will be to prepare the voting artifacts so that the Amendments can be officially recorded by Fairfax County. This will all take some time, but once they are recorded the proposed Amendments would go into effect. We will provide an update once the Election Committee has tabulated the results.

Help Manage Your Community – Run for Election to the Board of Trustees

 

Did you know that the Board of Trustees manages an annual budget of about $2 million/year and has a direct impact on every Homeowner? The Board sets the annual assessments, makes improvements to the Community common areas, decides which activities will be funded, and creates the rules and regulations – like the Architectural Guidelines and the Townhome Parking policies. This year, six of the seven Board of Trustee positions are up for election. You will soon receive a mailing about the Annual Meeting and how you can put your name on the ballot.  

Deer Lake Ln / Beaumeadow Dr Fire Update

I am sure you are wondering what is going on at the site of the May 02, 2018 fire that made ten of our Association Townhomes uninhabitable. They remain cordoned off with security fencing. As these are private residences, we are still awaiting determinations from the insurance companies. The Association is seeking common demolition and rebuild in order to minimize disruption to the community. The fire investigation and rebuilding process is expected to take an extended period of time, and your patience is appreciated.

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. The GoFundMe account is still accepting donations. Most recently the Ono Brewing Company provided their June donations to the cause. Thank you for your continuing support.

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.
