There are three major governmental entities that make decisions regarding the future of our region. Two are Virginia localities, and one is a major public university. Charlottesville is a 10.4 square mile independent City completely surrounded by Albemarle County. The University of Virginia is the region's primary employer, with 20,834 students enrolled in 2007-2008 and with over 12,000 faculty and staff. Water and sewer is provided in the City of Charlottesville and in urbanized sections of Albemarle County by the Rivanna Water and Sewer Authority.
Charlottesville Tomorrow features coverage of top-level public meetings of the City Council and the Albemarle County Board of Supervisors, as well as the planning commission's in both localities. Visit [cvilletomorrow.typepad.com] for podcasts and articles about these meetings.
In addition, there are many governmental bodies and non-governmental groups that help shape the region's future. cvillepedia is a resource that brings it all together to help citizens navigate. We need your help to build it, so please volunteer today.
