Daycare Owner Continues to Wait for Council Decision

Another delay for the rezoning of Janie's Kid Zone in Quispamsis.

The process started back in May, and last week's town council meeting was supposed to determine whether the area on Sugarmaple Lane would be rezoned for a daycare.
With more letters of support coming in to the town, the issue has been tabled until a public hearing can be held in February.
Owner Janie Stewart says it's frustrating the process is still going on, but at least it's winding down.
Neighbours previously opposed the location of the daycare, and the final chance to be heard on the issue is on February 2nd.
