What is Cvillepedia?

Cvillepedia is a wiki dedicated to sharing and building community knowledge and history about the people, places, and events in Charlottesville and Albemarle County. It is built with the same software as Wikipedia and is a free, public, collaborative encyclopedia that anyone can edit and improve. Cvillepedia is a volunteer run project with hosting provided by Charlottesville Tomorrow.

Take a look at a May 2021 report from FCG Consulting called Recommendations for Hosting, Supporting, and Managing Cvillepedia
