Under the terms of the 1982 Revenue Sharing Agreement between the City of Charlottesville and Albemarle County, unilateral annexation efforts by the city are prohibited in exchange for a share of the county's revenue. Over the years, the city of Charlottesville and Albemarle County have had many disputes over boundaries;

  • In the late 1990's, there was also talk of a City-County reversion to shift the independent city of Charlottesville to "town " statue, that effort concluded in late 1999.[1]
  • A referendum was held on March 3, 1970 on the issue of merging the city and county into one entity. However, it was defeated 2 to 1 by city voters and 4 to 1 by county voters. The next year the city drew up plans to annex 11.3 square miles of county land. In September a judge would deny the petition. In 1972, the city asked for 12.1 square miles but were again denied.[2]
