One popular theory of lawyer Marilyn Mosby's upset win over incumbent State's Attorney Gregg Bernstein was that race played a deciding role in the election, helping a political newcomer oust a white prosecutor in a majority-black city. But Baltimore residents voted less along racial lines than they did four years ago when Bernstein knocked off veteran top city prosecutor Patricia Jessamy with overwhelming support in white neighborhoods, a Baltimore Sun analysis shows. An analysis of census data and precinct-by-precinct election results shows that Bernstein's support eroded in South, Southeast and North Baltimore - which contain the heavy-voting, majority-white neighborhoods of Federal Hill, Canton and Roland Park, respectively.

Community comment will weigh heavily in choosing among three proposals for redeveloping the Northern District police station building in Hampden, city officials said yesterday. Charles Graves, director of city planning, said the proposals - one involving a Heritage Savings bank and two for primarily residential use - received by Friday's deadline were "pretty strong."

Another September has come and gone, and the city's new Northern District police station still stands unfinished on Cold Spring Lane - a year behind its original completion date. At a groundbreaking ceremony in September 1998, then-Director of Public Works George G. Balog vowed to finish the job in exactly one year. His successor, George L. Winfield, estimated Friday that the building will be done in about two months, according to a statement released by his aides. A number of problems have delayed the $4.8 million project: contaminated soil, most likely from an adjacent old landfill; re-engineering work because of Loyola College's interest in nearby woodlands; and a recommended construction schedule the city said hasn't been followed.

More officers in the city's Northern District are walking the beat or patrolling on bikes this month as part of a pilot program to get officers more engaged in their communities. The new deployment began Monday, affecting only the day shift, and will last about two weeks, according to Deputy Major Dennis L. Smith. It reduces the number of patrol vehicles from 19 to 11 in a district that contains some of Baltimore's most affluent neighborhoods but some troubled communities as well. The balance of the officers are being dispatched to foot patrols and bicycle details.

Short of banging her fist on a table, merchant Denise Whiting couldn't have been more emphatic about the need for more police presence in and around The Avenue, at a time when property crime in Hampden is rising.

Kimberly Burrus, at a meeting of the Hampden Village Merchants Association on Sept. 11. "We need one desperately," Whiting said. Burrus was just as emphatic in her response.

Outside the old Northern District police station in Hampden, workers are moving at a furious pace. Construction starts as early as 7 a.m. and lasts well into the early evening, all in an attempt to get the historic Victorian-style landmark ready for its new tenant, set to move in next month. It is, considering the amount of work left, an ambitious undertaking. The inside of the main building looks more like an abandoned rowhouse than a place scheduled to have a public gathering Saturday to celebrate the Community Law Center's arrival.

The Anne Arundel County Council will hold a hearing Tuesday on zoning changes in two districts where a new countywide development plan recommends making more land available for homes and businesses. The council will consider public opinion on zoning changes sought in Council District 1, from Jessup to Brooklyn Park, and Council District 4, from Millersville to Laurel. These are the first two of seven districts to go through a process expected to take much of this year. Council Chairman Richard Ladd said the panel will hear views on nine amendments proposed to the zoning changes but probably will not vote on the rezoning until next month.
