The Southeast Neighborhood Association complained that the citys Planning and Zoning Commission didnt appropriately weigh the noise impacts that will come from students playing sports on the proposed field, which Boise State University plans to build north of Belmont Street between Oakland and Lincoln avenues. Neighborhood representatives also said the city shouldnt allow the field since it would stray outside the boundary of Boise States master plan. But the City Council voted 3-1 that Planning and Zoning hadnt erred in its approval of the university plan. Councilwoman Elaine Clegg sided with the neighborhood association and cast the sole no vote. Councilman David Eberle abstained from the vote, and Councilwoman Lauren McLean was not at the meeting.
