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.
