The public will now have until Feb. 21 to give opinions on a proposal to install three lighted lacrosse fields two with synthetic turf and one with natural grass at the Charles F. McDevitt Sports Complex in West Boise.
Wednesday was the original deadline. Parks and Recreation extended it because people who live near the sports complex said they didn't have enough time to make their ideas heard, spokeswoman Amy Stahl said.
A plan for the complex would 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. Private donations solicited by youth sports organizations would pay for the upgrades.
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 and Recreation website at http://bit.ly/masterplancomments.
