When Arnold Hayes was a Baltimore school teacher in 1972, he purchased a home in the city where he worked. But there was nothing city about his new neighborhood of Fairmount. Hayes found open spaces and wooded areas within the urban setting. And Hayes, who is now president of the Fairmount Community Association, knew he was home in what he fondly calls his country retreat. Fairmount is a five-street southwest Baltimore neighborhood comprising Chelsea Road, Nortonia Road, Chesholm Road and Winterbourne Road and backing up to the Gwynns Falls Trail.

To Jerry O. Pittman, the dilapidated 148-year-old mansion known as "The Mount" offers an opportunity for staff members of his nonprofit group home provider to come together under one roof in an isolated corner of West Baltimore. But Pittman's plans to restore the mansion - fixing its slumping roof and gutting its interior to create office space for about 30 employees - is running into fierce neighborhood opposition. Many residents of the Fairmount community charge that his idea, particularly his proposal to build a community center on an adjacent piece of property, will bring in unwarranted traffic, noise and other unwelcome hazards.
