Vinegar Hill was a historically black neighborhood that was razed in 1962 as part of a Charlottesville-led redevelopment program. 
In 1960, Charlottesville voters approved a referendum authorizing the redevelopment of Vinegar Hill. The area was leveled in 1964. Many of the approximately 500 displaced residents moved into the Westhaven public housing project. 
A group is seeking to build a monument to the neighborhood on the grounds of the Jefferson School City Center and is asking City Council[when?] for $24,000 from the Percent for Art fund to pay for its design.  Construction is budgeted between $100,000 and $200,000. Proposals are being taken through March 15, 2012 and a finalist will be announced on April 15, 2012.
