Police, Supervisor Moving to New Building Next Week

New North County Government Center

After years of construction and a move-in delay of several months, the offices of Hunter Mill Supervisor Cathy Hudgins and the Fairfax County Police’s Reston District Station are slated to to move into the new North County Government Center Feb. 23 and 24.

The new building, at 1801 Cameron Glen Dr., has been under construction for more than two years. The current building, constructed in 1985, will be torn down to make way for a parking lot after the moves are complete.

A 2006 bond referendum provided the $18 million funding for the new building.

The new building will be approximate 35,000 square feet, which is nearly double the size of the current building.

The supervisor’s section of the building will include a larger community room. The project will be seeking a LEED Silver certification by incorporating high-efficiency plumbing and HVAC systems, water efficient landscaping, a “cool roof” with high reflectivity, use of recycled components and low-emitting materials and construction waste management practices.

There are also plans to include a public art work on the east side of the building.

County offices may be hard to reach as phones are disconnected on moving day, but after that all phone numbers will remain the same, county officials said.

The building is the first new construction in the “Town Center North” area, which may eventually include a new library, replacement of the Embry Rucker Community Center, a new community center and other mixed-use amenities.

There will be grand opening event for the facility later this year.
