The Central City Commission was a group formed in 1971[1] to explore possible futures for the center of Charlottesville. Its initial chairman was Alvin Clements. The commission served as the "private" elements in the public-private partnership that led to the creation of the Charlottesville Downtown Mall.

In 1973, Clements told the Fredericksburg Free Lance-Star that merchants such as himself were willing to contribute money to the project[2].
