CORRALES, N.M. (AP) – Corn mazes might be fun for kids, but neighbors’ complaints about one in Corrales may put it out of business.
The Albuquerque Journal reports the Village Planning and Zoning Commission denied the owners of the property’s request for a special use permit that would have allowed them to operate their annual corn maze and pumpkin patch.
The zoning commission ruled in June 2014 that the corn maze and the additional activities were not compliant with the agricultural zoning and asked the family to apply for a special use permit on the property.
Last year neighbors filed complaints about noise and traffic. Rozanne Wagner, one of the owners, said this is the first year they’ve had to apply for a permit.
