The Bykota Senior Center, long the subject of speculation as a possible site for a new Towson-area elementary school, now is off the table, and the Baltimore County public school system is instead looking to expand Pleasant Plains and Oakleigh elementaries, a top official said Monday.
“We were evaluating several sites. Bykota was one of them. Now we are leaning toward a different plan,” said Kevin Smith, the school system’s chief administrative and operations officer. He said adding a combined 400 seats at Oakleigh, in Parkville, and Pleasant Plains, in Towson, “would give us the same effect” as rebuilding on the site of Bykota, 611 Central Ave. in Towson.

An administrative law judge will decide whether a Towson student housing project that’s drawn criticism from neighbors and community members should go forward.
The $75 million project would accommodate more than 600 college students, mainly those attending nearby Towson University, and would include ground-floor retail space on its 2.74-acre site along York Road.
Neighbors say the proposal is too big, lacks adequate parking and would cause traffic headaches on York Road. County Administrative Law Judge John E. Beverungen began hearings Monday and will decide whether to approve zoning for 101 York.
