What’s the best home for the City Market?

Charlottesville continues to study the future of its popular City Market… 

A key question regarding the search for the City Market’s permanent home is whether the city should lead a public-private effort to redevelop the existing site (city-owned parking lots) creating a public space for the market within a larger multi-block mixed-use development.  Other options are to keep doing what we are doing today or to find a new site somewhere else altogether and sell the lots to the highest bidder for development. 

Based upon what you know today, what do you think?
