About a dozen residents of the Northeast Baltimore community of Frankford protested outside City Hall yesterday, carrying signs criticizing the city for approving a housing project for low- and moderate-income residents in their neighborhood.

"Every developer who has come into that project has raped it," said Raymond Lowder, president of the Frankford Improvement Association, referring to previous developers who have owned the 18-acre complex while it fell into disrepair in the past 20 years.
