The Baltimore County Council gave the green light Monday for county agencies to review plans for a controversial redevelopment of a government center in Dundalk and construction of a student housing project in Towson.

With one member absent, the council voted unanimously to advance plans for Merritt Pavilion in Dundalk and 101 York in Towson, as well as a project in Reisterstown known as 25 Main Street.

The three projects are “planned unit developments,” a county designation that gives developers flexibility in zoning regulations if their proposals offer a demonstrated benefit to the community.
