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.

Tot Lot and Tennis Court Closures
Following the guidance from the Fairfax County Park Authority, Sully Station II Community Association (SSIICA) is closing all Tot Lots and Tennis Courts effective immediately until further notice.

We strongly encourage that you adhere to all closure notices and current social distancing recommendations. Use of the Tot Lots and Tennis Courts against recommendation during the closure will be done at your own risk.
