  • Albertsons Stadium expansion

Presented by TOK

In the afternoon, we let you know about an expansion of Albertsons Stadium.

The morning story said the expansion wouldn’t happen for ten years.

The afternoon story didn’t include a timeline – as the school didn’t say in a news release when the expansion might take place.

Later that day, athletic director Curt Apsey appeared on KTIK and said he “hoped” to have the expansion open by 2022.

We asked the school about the mismatch between its formal plan with the City of Boise, and the “hoped for” timeline.

“Projects like the proposed stadium expansion are entirely dependent on donor interest and donor dollars and can take years to come together,” Boise State Associate Vice President for Communications and Marketing Greg Hahn said. “If it looks like we can make it happen sooner, as Curt said he would be happy for that to happen. There is no set timeline.”

Hahn said the school can update its master plan with the timeline change but doesn’t believe it will require going back through the approval process with the City of Boise.

The new Albertsons Stadium plan includes added premium seating, updated concourse, and new student-athlete academic facilities.

A hearing on the current master plan revamp will take place tonight at 6 p.m. at Boise City Hall.
