Boise's Planning and Zoning Commission convenes Monday to consider several high-profile construction projects. Among them, Boise State wants to build a new intramural sports field on nearly three acres bordered by Belmont Street and Oakland and Lincoln avenues. The field would be constructed of green synthetic turf and would be marked for men's and women's soccer, flag football and lacrosse, as well as rugby. The project would also include four 70-foot light towers.
Planning and Zoning will also consider Western Recycling's proposal to move its facility to 13 acres off of Victory Road. Its current recycling and record-destruction operation is situated across from Costco on South Cole Road.
Boise's Park and Recreation Department also wants permission to locate a paved pathway adjacent to the Boise River as part of the planned Marianne Williams Park in Barber Valley. The path would connect to the planned Dallas Harris River Walk in Harris Ranch.
