Boise Parks and Recreation Department will host a public meeting Jan. 24 to discuss a proposal that would install three lighted lacrosse fields two with synthetic turf and one with natural grass at the Charles F. McDevitt Sports Complex in West Boise.
A revised plan would also include a restroom and concessions building, baseball field lights and scoreboards, pathways, landscaping and additional parking.
City officials haven't calculated the cost of the upgrades yet, Parks and Recreation Department spokeswoman Amy Stahl said. Private donations solicited by youth sports organizations would pay for the upgrades. An earlier story indicated the funds would come from the organizations, but it wasnt clear how.
The meeting will start at 6 p.m. in the Lowell Scott Middle School library, 13600 W. McMillan Rd.
The Charles F. McDevitt Sports Complex is a 20-acre special use park located at 5101 N. Eagle Rd. The primary area to be discussed is a 10-acre undeveloped corner of the park next to Eagle Road. The current master plan features a community center at the site.
Maps showing the current and proposed master plans are available on the Boise Parks & Recreation website at http://bit.ly/masterplancomments.
