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.

    Hopefully the move will be smooth!

    What ‘community center’ is being planned for Town Center North (TCN)?

    Hopefully this refers instead to the new Hunter Mill District FCPA funded Recreation Center for which we have been waiting decades. Phase 1 of the Reston Master Plan that the Board of Supervisors approved a year ago has a rec center amenity located in TCN. And luckily for us, FC Park Authority already has 5 acres of undeveloped park land in TCN which can be used for this facility!

    Heaven knows that Small Tax District #5 members (most of Reston pays EXTRA taxes into STD #5 to fund Reston Community Center) should NOT be paying for a new rec facility when every other district in the county has one (or 2 – Mt. Vernon!) supported by our FFX Co. Park Authority. We can’t be asked to continue to pay for 9 other existing FCPA district rec centers when they pay NOTHING for us!

    The good news is that STD #5 / RCC can NOT proceed with their plans to have us alone pay without a public referendum. Keep letting the RCC Board of Governors know how you feel. More and more people are getting informed. A referendum is pricey: $60K+ of our EXTRA STD tax dollars wasted. Stay tuned.

    They are seeking LEED silver for Hudgins’ Taj Mahal North, but are demolishing the not-so-old 1985 building and adding parking? Not green at all.
