In November 2016, Fairfax County voters approved the Human Services and Community Development Bond Referendum which provided funding for the construction of the new Sully Community Center - to serve the Chantilly/Centreville/Oak Hill areas.
Project Site and Scope
The new Sully Community Center will be roughly a 30,000 square-foot facility and serve as a multi-generational facility for the surrounding communities. The facility will be constructed on approximately 5 acres located at the intersection of Wall Road and the Air and Space Museum Parkway in Chantilly - near Highlands Park.
Once completed, this new location will serve as the new home of the Sully Senior Center (currently operating in leased space in Chantilly), as well as provide a broader array of services, programs and activities for individuals of all ages and abilities.
The project is currently entering the initial design stage and is scheduled for completion by spring 2022.
Estimated Project Timeline
- Fall 2017 - Fall 2019: Design/Zonning/Permits
- Fall 2019: Bid the Project
- Winter 2019: Begin Construction
- (Anticipated) Spring 2022: Occupancy
Public Participation in the Design/Construction Process
Fairfax County Community Centers are multi-service facilities that serve the needs of individuals of all ages and abilities throughout Fairfax County. To that end, the county is seeking public input to ensure that the new facility is designed to meet the needs and interests of the community it serves. There will be multiple opportunities for community involvement throughout the process to discuss everything from construction logistics, amenities and curb appeal to the programming and activities desired at the location.
In Nov, 2017, a survey was conducted within the surrounding community to gather public input for this project. The effort included both e-mail distribution as well as a door-to-door effort in the surrounding community. In total, the county received approximately 700 responses and county staff is currently reviewing the responses and will be compiling the results which will be shared on this site once compiled.
As the project develops, county staff will be hosting public meetings to keep residents informed on its progress and to receive feedback, comments and concerns. Meetings will be posted to this site as dates are set. Please continue to check back for additional updates.
Project questions from the public may be directed via e-mail to the Sully Community Center project manager, Allison Terzigni at Allison.Terzigni@fairfaxcounty.gov.
