School District of Rhinelander unveils renderings of athletic dome
RHINELANDER - The proposed athletic dome at Rhinelander High School will obviously help the district's sports teams.

But the school board has its sights set on something bigger.

The district unveiled new renderings of the dome and the sports complex.

They went with the larger version of the two designs they were considering.

That larger version is roughly 20,000 additional square feet.

All the extra space provides room not just for sporting events, but for it to become a true community centerpiece.

"This can add to the facility, to the community, to have conventions potentially and even garden shows," school board president Ron Counter said. "It can be rented out to other athletic teams and it can be rented out to big functions."

Rhinelander's school board estimated that the final costs will be somewhere around $5.5 million.

The dome is expected to last for more than two decades before needing repairs.
