GOSHEN — A new soccer field for children could be coming to the south side of Goshen.

The Elkhart County Board of Zoning Appeals will review an application filed by Horacio and Martha Muro for an athletic field south of C.R. 38 just east of C.R. 21.

The field would be used for soccer games and practices from 4 to 8 p.m. Monday through Friday, and from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Saturdays. The property owners also plan to build a concession stand to sell snacks and bottled drinks. The field is expected to have between 20 and 30 visitors each hour, according to the special use permit application.

The BZA will hold a public hearing on the permit request at 8:30 a.m. Thursday, May 16.
