Charlottesville has four sister cities:

Charlottesville's sister-city program is coordinated by the Sister Cities Commission, and the city is a member of Sister Cities International.[1].

Commemorative clock

To commemorate the four cities, the city considered building a clock. The item received a certificate of appropriateness from the Board of Architectural Review on March 15, 2011.[2] However, the project died when the design that won a contest came with a $60,000 cost estimate. City Council had only set aside $25,000 for the project. The Sister Cities Commission decided against fundraising for the balance. [3]
