A third community input meeting on the proposed 101 York planned unit development has been set for Tuesday, Oct 28, 7-9 p.m.
The meeting site, according to the Baltimore County government website is the Jefferson Building in Towson, at 105 West Chesapeake Ave., Room 104. The 101 York PUD would include a mixed-unit building with 611 beds dedicated as college dormitory space, 494 parking spaces and 9,300 square feet of commercial space.

The controversial 101 York development faced another round of community questions Monday and again the student housing project’s density and parking causing a ripple effect to nearby neighborhoods were top issues.
The community input meeting held at the Towson Library was the second for the project by DMS Development.
The mixed-use housing and retail project, which is being proposed as a planned unit development (PUD) under county zoning law, means the County Council must vote on it separately from the quadrennial rezoning process, and it doesn’t necessarily have to adhere to existing zoning for the property.

A community input meeting is set for Monday, Oct. 6, at 7 p.m. in the Towson Library meeting room.
In the print edition of the Towson Times, due to incorrect information on the county website, it was erroneously reported in the print edition of the Towson Times that the meeting would be held in the Baltimore County Office Building.

Local developer Greenberg Gibbons Commercial plans a “major refurbishment’ of The Shops at Kenilworth after purchasing a stake in the Towson mall last month, the firm’s CEO said.
With its location just off the Interstate 695 Beltway between Charles Street and York Road, extensive free parking and an upscale clientele for its some 30 stores, Brian Gibbons, CEO and chairman of the board at Greenberg Gibbons, calls the mall a “hidden gem.”
“I look at Kenilworth as a specialty center as opposed to a mall. We can make it really special. It’s got a lot of history,” Gibbons said. “Towson is a challenge with traffic and parking. We want this to be a treasure with great parking that’s an easy in-and-out.”
Over the next six to eight months, plans will be developed to improve Kenilworth, Gibbons said.

The new public parking rates and hours instituted in Towson two months ago are already being revised. Baltimore County Revenue Authority’s July 1 changes affected the nearly 4,800 parking spaces the quasi-government agency oversees.
The reason for the revisions is a matter of opinion.
Kenneth Mills Jr., CEO of the Revenue Authority, said he always planned to look at the situation post-changes to make sure they had the desired effect, notably to maximize parking spaces and to avoid gridlock.
But on Aug. 12, State Sen. James Brochin, Del. Stephen Lafferty Councilman David Marks, all of whom represent Towson, sent a letter to county officials requesting revisions to what they called “radical changes” to Towson parking.
