  • The three City Democrats running for City Council recently appeared at a candidates’ forum sponsored by Charlottesville Tomorrow and the Free Enterprise Forum (Charlottesville Tomorrow)
  • The new daily train from Lynchburg to Washington, D.C. will start operating in October, but the schedule may make the journey a lot less appealing to people who want to do business there. (Charlottesville Tomorrow)
  • Upgrades for the Moores Creek Wastewater Treatment Plant will be cheaper than expected, but will still cost $40.3 million. The goal is to reduce the amount of nutrients that are released from the plant into the watershed. (Charlottesville Tomorrow)
