Local residents recently got their initial glimpse of the new community center planned for the Sully District. And Hana Chang was first to address the nearly 70 people attending an informational meeting in Sully’s Governmental Center.

“We’ve been working on the design of his building, and we’re excited to share it with you,” said Chang, with Fairfax County’s Department of Public Works and Environmental Services. “It’s one story, about 30,000 square feet and is on a 5-acre site [bounded by Wall Road and Air and Space Museum Parkway in Chantilly].”

She said a 2017 community survey – to which more than 700 residents responded – guided what elements will go into this county project that has an estimated $20 million price tag. And she told residents it’s scheduled for completion by summer 2022.

Evan Braff, a regional manager with the county’s Neighborhood and Community Services, presented further details. “I live in the Sully District, so I’ve been waiting for this,” he said. “This will be Fairfax County’s 10th community center, and we want to get feedback from the community about the types of programs and services they want there.”
