NORWAY — The Planning Board has granted a local woman permission to open a tattoo and piercing parlor on Paris Street.

Chairman Dennis Gray said Monday afternoon that Christine Mitchell sought permission to open the business at 62 Paris St. He said she had all her licenses and building owner Terry Porter is willing to lease her the space.

“She doesn’t need any special building permits or stuff like that to get started,” Gray said, adding that she was excited to “get the ball rolling.”

The board granted permission Thursday.

“She is pretty excited,” Gray said. “She said that if she could, she’d run over to the building and put up a sign.”

In other business, Gray said the board voted to approve a change of use for the building at 2 Solan St.

He said the single-family residence has a hair business, but owner Missy Kenney wanted to add a second apartment.

“We went through everything that she would need, and fortunately, (Fire Chief) Dennis Yates was at the meeting, so he was able to give her suggestions for fire safety purposes,” Gray said.
