SCOUTING FOR FOOD
We are from Cub Scout Pack 1862 and Boy Scout Troop 1995, and we are Scouting for Food!
Our mission is to collect non-perishable food items on behalf of Western Fairfax Christian Ministries Food Pantry (www.wfcmva.org), which provides assistance to families right here in our community, regardless of religion. The food we collect will fill the food pantry shelves for 5-6 months.
Thank you for your support!
This year, to help reduce the spread of COVID we are asking residents to please bring your non-perishable foods to one of the locations and times noted below:
October 25 through November 12 from 9am-5pm
Sully Station II Community Center, 5501 Sully Park Dr
Donation box will be located inside the Community Center

We will also be offering a drive through location at:
Minnieland Academy, 5801 Stone Creek Dr

Please place items in a bag or box for easy drop-off
Important Bill Pay Notice - Assessment Lockbox Address Change
Our current Lockbox service provider, ClickPay, will be moving their lockbox services to a new, state-of-the-art facility in Tampa, FL to provide an improved service experience for our valued community members. ClickPay has selected the new processing facility in Tampa, FL due to its optimal location for check processing as it is strategically located for faster mail transit times.
Due to this change, the mailing address for members to submit payments by paper check, Online Bank Bill Pay and money orders, will be changing effective December 1, 2021.
NEW MAILING ADDRESS FOR ASSESSMENT PAYMENTS:
Sully Station II Community Association
℅ FirstService Residential
P.O. Box 30403
Tampa, FL 33630-3403
All paper-based payments sent to the old mailing address will be temporarily forwarded to the new lockbox, but we encourage you to update the mailing address by December 1, 2021. This includes updating the mailing address if you pay your monthly assessments via online bill pay through your bank. While the transaction processes electronically from your bank account, your bank still mails a physical check to the lockbox address they have on file.
This change will NOT have an impact on a member’s ability to make electronic payments by e-check (ACH), and credit or debit card. As the preferred payment method, we encourage members to pay online by visiting www.ClickPay.com/FirstService. If you pay online via e-check (ACH) by signing up with your bank account and routing number, there are no additional fees.
All coupons and statements processed will be updated with the new remittance address.

SSIICA Mass Email Communications from Management
The FirstService Residential Associate Portal (Administration side of the Connect Resident Portal) recently underwent a major update to the Mass Communication tool. Previously our mass communications were being sent from our FirstService Residential email addresses specific to your onsite Management Team (Rebecca Winchester and Lizette Rivera) and they are now being sent from a more generic email address to try to ensure the emails are being sent and delivered with a higher success rate. The new email address you will now see as the sender for our communications is Communications@mc.fsresidential.com. Although the sender has changed, our mass communications remain equally important, and we ask you to please continue opening emails that come from Communications@mc.fsresidential.com. If you haven’t received any of our latest communications, please check your spam box or contact Management at email@example.com.

Fairfax County Sully Basins Retrofit Project
The Fairfax County Department of Public Works and Environmental Services and Stormwater Planning Division started their efforts to retrofit the dry pond located near Watermark Circle, Grobie Pond Lane, and Linden Creek Court. Fairfax County held a virtual pre-construction meeting to share information on the Sully Basins Retrofitting Project and answer questions. If you were unable to attend please click here to access the recording of their presentation.
Section 14 Residents will have six Section 14 marked parking spaces impacted during the Fairfax County Sully Basins Retrofit Project. The Contractor has already installed the orange safety fence barrier around some of the work area and has placed orange cones in six of the Section 14 marked parking spaces that they will require access to on Watermark Circle for the duration of the project. The County is requiring that the six Section 14 marked parking spaces identified using orange cones be free of vehicles between the hours of 7:00 a.m. and 9:00 p.m. The Contractor will also be relocating the pet waste station and trash can nearest these spaces. It will be relocated approximately 10 feet away from its current location.
Please be sure that the spaces remain free of vehicles during the designated hours as required by the County or vehicles may be subject to towing.
If you have questions or would like additional information, please contact the project manager Ken Trinh at 703-324-1016 or Kenneth.Trinh@fairfaxcounty.gov.
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.
