City of Charlottesville
605 E. Main St.
City Council Vision 2025 call for the City to be a leader in innovation, environmental sustainability, and social and economic justice; to be flexible and progressive in anticipating and responding to the needs of the citizens; and to act as the cultural and creative capital of Central Virginia. There are eight main areas of focus: economic sustainability, lifelong learning, quality housing opportunities for all, arts and culture, green city initiatives, healthy city initiatives, a connected community, and smart, citizen-focused government. Councilors hope by making this distinction and creating this direction, future Councils, staff, and decision-makers will have a clearer picture of the type of City that citizens wish to encourage and create.
