What is cvillepedia?

cvillepedia is a new resource on government in Albemarle County and Charlottesville, and we need your help!

Have you ever wondered what the relationship is between the City of Charlottesville and the Rivanna Water and Sewer Authority? Why are the Central Grounds for the University of Virginia technically in Albemarle County? Why do County residents pay taxes to the City of Charlottesville through the revenue sharing agreeement? The answer to these questions can often be hard to find.

That's where cvillepedia comes in. cvillepedia is a wiki created by Charlottesville Tomorrow to document the history and explain the structure of civic life in Charlottesville and Albemarle County. Our goal is to create a destination for all residents to learn about how government works in our community.

To contribute to cvillepedia, the first thing to do is to log in or create an account.
