Boise State could be a part of Boise Sports Park again

With plans for its own baseball facility mitigating a championship, Boise State is looking at the multi-use ball court that could be built in Boise downtown.

The announcement comes when the major developer called Boise City officials who should proceed to school again.

“Boise State's priority is to build a state of the art facility for our newly launched baseball program,” said Boise State Curt Apsey Athletics in a newsletter. “We want to make sure that we thoroughly explore all our options and make the best long-term decision for the university and our program.”

The records show that Schoen asked Boise for guidance

Chris Schoen Greenstone and Nic Miller in Boise City launched in October trying to find out if Boise State could join again.

“Boise State no longer has Nic-Cis (sic), is it wise to talk to the new interim man about a joint facility? They are preparing to find out how expensive a new stadium will be… ”Schoen wrote.

In an e-mail later, Miller said “worth calling him and then we could help, if necessary.” T

After an apparent meeting between the interim president of Schoen and Boise State Martin Schimpf, Greenstone principal emailed Miller again – 15 October:

“Very good conversation with Interim President. Don't know whether Joe Scott made a big contribution to getting them off the first time but he was very happy to understand what we were doing and how a joint facility would work. I said that I thought that its facility would cost at least $ 20 million without land and that this debt service would be in the annual $ 1.0 million plus maintenance. It makes great sense to build one facility and share. ”

The news release comes just a day after BoiseDev has requested additional public records for contact between State City and Boise officials on the car. The application has not yet been met.

Boise State states that his plan for a field will continue on campus.
