Charlottesville Tomorrow is a nonprofit organization that produces stories on land use planning in Charlottesville, Virginia.

The organization was launched in 2005 through grants and private donations to create reports on transportation, land use and environmental issues. In 2009 Charlottesville Tomorrow began a content-sharing partnership with The Daily Progress, the newspaper for Charlottesville. Under the terms of the partnership articles from Charlottesville Tomorrow appear on The Daily Progress website and in print. The director of Charlottesville Tomorrow, Brian Wheeler, works in concert with The Daily Progress’ editors to plan coverage on daily and weekly stories. The nonprofit receives no direct financial compensation from the newspaper.

In 2011 the collaboration was recognized by Editor & Publisher.
