North County Governmental Center Grand Opening

Hunter Mill District Supervisor Catherine M. Hudgins invites you to a Grand Opening and Ribbon Cutting ceremony, on Saturday, June 18, 10 a.m. – 2 p.m., at the North County Governmental Center, 1801 Cameron Glen Drive, Reston.

Like the Grand Opening celebration, the new facility is shared with the Reston District Police Station. Captain Ronald T. Manzo, on behalf of the Fairfax County Police Department, will be welcoming the community along with Supervisor Hudgins.

In addition to the ribbon cutting and the official unveiling of the newly completed public art sculpture, the community is invited to stop by for a day of family activities. You can tour the building and station, enjoy some summer treats, and attend a storytime courtesy of the Reston Regional Library. Also, meet members of the K-9 unit, watch the landing of the police helicopter, admire the motorcycle squad as they navigate the demonstration course, and explore a fire truck inside and out. At this family-friendly event, there will be interactive displays, and public safety vehicles to explore.
