The Provo Corn Maze Needs Your Help!
On December 6, 2016 at 5:30 p.m. the Provo City Council will be voting to approve the use of eminent domain to construct the proposed Provo Lakeview Parkway directly through our corn maze. If the proposed road cannot be altered, delayed or stopped, it will be the end of McCoard’s Fall Festival and the Provo Corn Maze.
Please show your support by voicing your opinion at the Provo City Council Meeting this Tuesday, December 6th at 5:30 p.m. or by contacting the Provo City Council directly.
The Council’s Chambers are located at 351 West Center Street, Provo.

We would like to express our sincere thanks for all the kind words and public support that we have received from the community. Unfortunately, on January 3rd the city council voted to authorize the use of eminent domain to obtain our property along the proposed Lakeview Parkway. This new road will bisect our corn maze and make it impossible to hold our fall festival on our property as we have in the past. We will lose some of our parking and may have issues with construction, but our greenhouses and retail center will be open as usual this coming season. We are still holding out hope that the city will continue to negotiate with us in good faith, and that with some luck we can find a solution that will allow us to continue our fall festival this coming year. Stay tuned, we will keep you updated as we learn more. Thanks again for your support, The McCoard Family.
