Policy Resolution No. 7, Revision
Following the Hearing held at the March 25, 2021 Sully Station II Community Association (SSIICA) virtual Board of Trustees meeting, the Board approved changes to Policy Resolution No. 7, Vehicle Policy. Please use this link to access the revised Policy: Policy Resolution No. 7, Vehicle Policy. The revised Policy Resolution will be effective on April 15, 2021. Until April 15, 2021, the current Policy Resolution No. 7 remains in full effect.
All Owners should be familiar with the Vehicle Policy, and Owners are responsible for ensuring any tenants and guests are also aware of and abide by the Policy.
Aligned to our other Parking space efforts, Vehicle Policy enforcement has been a priority and Management will continue increased enforcement actions under the revised policy.
The following table lists some of the notification requirements that are addressed in this vehicle policy:
Other notable items:
- If a vehicle is parked in a designated handicapped space, the vehicle must display BOTH a valid DMV issued handicap permit and a valid management-issued Sully Station II Section hanging tag, where hanging tags are required.
- If a vehicle in violation of this policy is moved to any other Common Area parking space where it remains in violation, the vehicle may be towed without additional notice.
- If a vehicle is covered while parked or stored in a Common Area, authorized individuals may lift the cover to ascertain whether the vehicle is in compliance with this policy.
- Policy Resolution No. 7 also extends to the VDOT maintained public streets running through our community as defined in the Sully Station II Parking District. Vehicles parked on public streets and private driveways within the boundaries of the SSIICA Development Limits are subject to this policy.
- Vehicle must display both valid registration tags and inspection.
Some notable changes in the revision that is effective on April 15, 2021:
- Exceptions for vehicles listed in Section II.A.1(a) parked in private driveways and assigned spaces has been reduced from seventy-two (72) hours four (4) times in a calendar year to forty-eight (48) hours two (2) times in a calendar year without prior written approval.
- A rule has been added that specifically prohibits non-vehicular items being placed in any parking area without prior written approval.
- The language regarding vehicles parked in the same Common Area or Cluster Common Area unmarked, “open” or “visitor” parking spaces has changed from three consecutive nights to three consecutive days. Days begin and end at midnight local time.
- Enforcement has been updated to include enforcement that is an alternative to, or in addition to, all penalties set forth in the Governing Documents, including Policy Resolution No. 14.
- Enforcement has also been updated to address repeat violations of any one of the rules or regulations in place and includes, but is not limited to, the revocation of the Association-issued parking license.
Owners are responsible for reading and complying with the complete policy. Any questions may be directed to Management at Office@sully2.com.

Policy Resolution No. 16, 2018 Architectural Design Guidelines and Standards, Revision to Exhibit 1
At the April 23, 2020 Sully Station II Community Association (SSIICA) Board of Trustees meeting, the Board approved to revise Exhibit 1 to Policy Resolution No. 16, 2018 Architectural Design Guidelines and Standards, to include an accelerated timeline to enforce lawn maintenance and trash violations and two previous Board-approved motions regarding windows and doors.
The accelerated timeline change to enforce lawn maintenance and trash violations is as follows:
For lawns that are not mowed to maintain the height of grass below 6” and for Trash Containers that are not properly stored, the following enforcement timeline shall be used:
1. An initial written notification of non-compliance shall be sent to the Owner via First Class mail and shall require that the violation be rectified within 10 days from the date of the notice.
2. If the violation is not rectified within 10 days from the date of the initial written notice, Management shall call the Owner to a formal hearing before the Board of Trustees (BOT) via First Class mail and certified mail pursuant to the notification requirements set forth by the Virginia Property Owners Association Act.
3. As a result of this hearing, the BOT may vote to take appropriate actions which include:
A. Suspending the right of the Owner in question to use the Association’s recreational facilities;
B. Levying a charge in accordance with the provisions of the Governing Documents, including the Book of Regulations, and/or the Virginia Property Owners’ Association Act;
C. Referring the matter to legal counsel for appropriate action to secure compliance with the Association’s Legal Instruments;
D. As applicable and in accordance with Article VI, Section 2(b) of the Declaration, having the Association enter the property of the Owner in violation, correct the condition(s) which constitute the violation and impose a Restoration Assessment upon the lot for the full costs incurred by the Association in correcting the violation.
Should the Owner receive an initial written notice of non-compliance for the same violation on two occasions within a twelve (12) month period, the third initial notice of non-compliance (and any subsequent initial notices for the same violation) shall call the Owner directly to a hearing before the BOT.
The changes to the restrictions for windows and doors are as follows:
- Under WINDOWS, the following restriction is added: Grids, or mullions, are required in all windows. Exceptions may be granted by the ARB for decorative or casement windows or front door transoms and sidelights.
- Under DOORS, the following restriction is added: Exterior doors (other than front doors, storm doors and garage doors) that are largely glass, will all have grids, with the exception of sliding glass doors.
All Owners should be familiar with the Design Guidelines, and Owners are responsible for ensuring any tenants are also aware of and abide by the Policy. Please direct questions to Management at Office@sully2.com.
