NORWAY — The Planning Board has voted 5-0 to grant Peggy Cordwell permission to run a day care at her home at 272 Eddie Kahkonen Road.

“The final part of the licensing process is to get permission from the Planning Board to operate the day care,” Cordwell told the board Thursday night. “I just need your approval.”

Chairman Dennis Gray asked Cordwell how many children would be served. She said a maximum of 12. A helper will assist her.

Board member Michael Quinn asked Cordwell if the day care meets all of the state requirements. She said it does.

“Well, I think the kids will appreciate this, because there’s been a shortage of day care in the area,” Gray said.

In other business, Code Enforcement Officer Joelle Corey-Whitman said her last day with the town will be Jan. 20.


“I’ve given my notice, and it seems word has already started to spread around the town,” she said.

Board member Anthony Morra asked her where she was planning to work next.

“I’m going to Oxford,” she said before adding with a smile, “I’m defecting.”
