Boise Police Officers would like to remind fans who will be watching the Boise State vs UTEP Miners game on Friday, or enjoying the atmosphere outside the stadium, to remember:

  • Do not consume alcohol and drive vehicles.
  • Parking safely and legally. Those who ignore parking laws and/or signs pose a safety hazard and risk being ticketed or towed.
  • If fans are going to drink alcohol, do so at a designated place. Zones 10 to 10 remain in effect for home matches.
  • For public safety, open containers of alcohol are not allowed in public areas outside the 10 to 10 Zone including parking lots and neighborhood streets. Officers examined adults who gave alcohol to minors and for drinking to minors.
  • Be a good neighbor – use road crossings, litter, and respect the safety and cleanliness of homes and businesses in the BSU area.

Alcohol Suggestion: Officials want to remind residents to celebrate responsibly. Officers advise area residents and businesses to check ID and not to give alcohol to those under 21 years of age. For the sake of public safety, Boise Police will investigate illegal alcohol use on campus areas including an emphasis on neighborhoods south of campus where problems continue to be reported by neighbors and business people on streets, in parks, and parking lots involved in illegal alcohol use and problems. related behaviors such as disorderly behavior, underage drinking, drunk driving, assault, urinating in public, noisy parties, and littering.

10 to 10 Zone boundaries are specific. No “gray areas” outside of these limits are identified and any illegal use of alcohol outside these limits will be enforced.

It is a violation of city codes to open containers of alcohol on public roads and sidewalks, in city parks without a parks department permit, and within 250 feet of the Boise River. This includes private parking spaces that are open to the public (private parking spaces with catering permits are an exception).

10 to 10 Zones

Zones 10 to 10 remain in place for home games this season. It specifies off-campus areas where people 21 years of age or older may consume alcoholic beverages from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. only on Boise State home football game days.

Alcoholic beverages are allowed in frosted plastic cups within the zone. Glass containers, beer cans, and other types of liquor bottles and glasses with an alcohol label are not allowed.

The “zone” begins at Broadway Avenue and Myrtle Street, extends south on Broadway to Beacon, turns west along Beacon, north on Oakland Avenue, west on Potter Drive, north again on South Joyce Street, and then west along University Drive all the way to Capitol Boulevard. The boundary runs north along the Capitol and turns east onto Cesar Chavez Lane, across the Friendship Bridge to the north, and leads to Julia Davis Park. In the park, the “10 to 10 Zones” boundary is the area east of Zoo Boise to Broadway Avenue, and south of the Julia Davis pond.
