Citing personal correspondence

How do you cite correspondence from the City of Charlottesville? I have an email from Brian Daily talking about the design meetings that have occurred since the September meeting.

It's Brian Daly and you can use this as a last resort:

CITE EMAIL: <ref>{{cite email|subject=|from=|sourceorg=|to=|repositoryorg=|senddate=}}</ref> --Seantubbs (talk) 13:38, 12 February 2015 (CST)

Serious editing needed

I don't have time to do this now, but this article is far from neutral. --Seantubbs 15:35, 28 February 2012 (EST)

If you get a chance you could import wikipedia:template:POV. -- B.S. Lawrence 16:16, 28 February 2012 (EST)
Started the import and I'll try to complete it at some point soon--Seantubbs 14:37, 1 March 2012 (EST)

accurate definition?

According to Charlottesville Botanical Garden, McIntire Botanical Garden is the name of an organization. -- B.S. Lawrence 18:29, 28 August 2009 (EDT)

If you are thinking this is a duplicate, there are actually two proposals with different names. --Bwheeler 21:38, 28 August 2009 (EDT)

---Brian's right - I'll be updating this some time today.--Seantubbs 10:14, 29 August 2009 (EDT)

No, I get that they are two different proposals/groups; what I was trying to say is that McIntire Botanical Garden is the name of the group, not the garden (see, e.g., your recent blog post which states "Helen Flamini, executive director of the non-profit McIntire Botanical Garden,") . Or if it's the name of the garden, it is also the name of the group. I.e., this article (as titled) should be about the group (say, in the cat "non-profit organizations") as well as the garden, if the group/garden articles aren't split out from one another. Am I mistaken? -- B.S. Lawrence 13:15, 29 August 2009 (EDT)
While I'm here, I went ahead and cleaned up what I think I mean. Of course, correct if I overstepped my knowledge. -- B.S. Lawrence 13:27, 29 August 2009 (EDT)
Because much of the article should apply to the proposals for a botanical garden and not just the group, how do we specify backgroup info for both? Do we just replicate it on both pages? --Lmm6n 14:26, 31 August 2009 (EDT)
If there needs to be an article about proposals for the garden that does combine both, then I'd recommend a new "botanical garden" article with that info in it, and which then refers to the extant articles that describe the individual groups behind them. That's my thought, anyway. -- B.S. Lawrence 14:50, 31 August 2009 (EDT)
