Abstract
The proposed development of Vinegar Hill, as agreed to by the City ofCharlottesville and Bland and Hoye Developers in 1981, has provoked almost two years of spirited controversy among the members of the business community and among the citizenry of Charlottesville, Virginia. At issue is the question of whether the City should use public monies to subsidize the building of a luxury hotel in its downtown neighborhood. This paper will examine factors relevant to that issue: it will predict the distributional impact of the undertaking, it will relate the project to efficient resource allocation, and it will conduct an overall cost-benefit analysis. In short, this paper will demonstrate that the City has been ill-advised to participate in the proposed project.
