Greetings from the Sully District!

Greetings from the Sully District!

Welcome to the Sully District. I am your Sully District Supervisor, Kathy Smith, and I proudly represent our community on the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors. At the crossroads of major highways and adjacent to Washington Dulles International Airport, the Sully District is dotted with thriving office parks and wonderful amenities. 

A great thing about living in the Sully District is the general array of public events and activities that happen throughout the year. Coming up on Oct. 16, 2021 we have the annual Centreville Day celebration – a local favorite. The event includes family-friendly activities, entertainment, and a parade. 

The Starlight Drive-in Cinema takes place on Saturdays in August as part of the Park Authority’s Summer Entertainment Series. Come watch a movie under the stars at the Trinity Centre in Centreville. Admission is free. 

Our region is also lucky to include the Udvar-Hazy Air and Space Museum. If you have not been yet, I highly recommend visiting soon and taking in a movie at their IMAX movie theater. Just recently, the museum changed its policy, and time-entry passes are no longer needed for entry.

The Field at Commonwealth is a 169,264-square-foot mixed-use site located in Chantilly. It features a relatively new Wegmans grocery store and is surrounded by several restaurants and stores with different amenities. 

Another great advantage in our region is our abundance of public facilities. Fairfax County has an excellent public school system. Every day of the week, there are activities and educational programs at both Chantilly and Centreville Regional Libraries. You can learn about new technologies and join a book discussion group. 

The Sully Community Center is currently under construction and is slated for an early-2022 opening. It will be a great place for older adults to explore, for young adults to pursue a hobby, and for people of all ages to engage with members of the community. Also featured in our district is the Sully Senior Center which features engaging activities, learning and most of all, fun. Activities at the senior center are as diverse as the needs and interests of the community it serves.   

Fairfax County also has an exceptional park system. The Cub Run RECenter offers an indoor pool, nature program, and a gym. EC Lawrence Park’s 650 acres include: the Walney Visitor Center, athletic fields, trails, a picnic area, and an outdoor amphitheater. The Sully Historic Site, completed in 1799, was home to Northern Virginia’s first Representative to Congress. Guided tours as well as programs and camps happen all year long. The Sully Woodland core properties comprise roughly 2,000 acres of open space park land in the district. 

I hope you will find opportunities to get involved in your community. Sully District has representatives on 80-plus boards, authorities, and commissions. If you or someone you know would be interested in one of these positions, please contact my office to inquire about openings. 

Furthermore, if you need any help with county services or any other issues, please feel welcome to contact my office any time via email at or by phone at 703-814-7100. We have two community rooms that are available at the Sully Governmental Center for Fairfax County residents to use, free of charge.
