BPD is asking the public to respect the "10 by 10 zone" rule for Boise State home opener game

By On Your Side Newsroom. CREATED Sep 4, 2014

Boise State will be facing off against the Colorado State Rams on Saturday, September 6th, and police want to remind the public that the “10 by 10 zone” is still in effect.

The “10 by 10 zone” is a rule that sets locations where people can consume alcoholic beverages from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. during Boise State University home games.

The rules for alcoholic beverages apply as follows:
• Allowed only in opaque plastic cups within the Zone.
• Glass containers, beer cans, any type of liquor bottle or cups with alcoholic labeling are prohibited.
• Anyone consuming alcohol must be at least 21 years of age.

The “Zone” begins at Broadway Ave and Myrtle St., extends south down Broadway to Beacon, turns west along Beacon, north up Oakland Ave., west on Potter Dr., north again up S. Joyce St., and then west along University Dr. all the way to Capitol Blvd. The boundary extends north along Capitol Blvd. and turns east onto Cesar Chavez Ln, crosses Friendship Bridge north, and leads into Julia Davis Park. In the park, the “10 to 10 Zone” boundary is the area east of Zoo Boise to Broadway St. and any area south of Julia Davis Pond.

The rule has helped reduce the number of open container tickets from a high of 400 to only 199 in 2013.
