The Tomahawk Dome facility closed to rental use in mid-March of this year after District programming at the dome was discontinued in May 2008. The current dome has been in place about 18 years, which is three years beyond its expected 15-year lifespan and District officials have decided not to continue its use due to its age and condition. Current plans call for removing the dome later this year and building an expansion to the north and west at the Okun Fieldhouse at the Mid-America Sports Complex. This is also expected to allow toward realigning and upgrading the Tomahawk Hills Golf Course, also located at 17501 Midland Drive.
