Village Council, in partnership with Parkland County, commissioned Stantech Engineering in 2016 to complete an assessment of the arena. The assessment examined building condition, mechanical components, long term options, costs, usage, need, location etc.. It can be found below. Based on the results of that assessment, the dissolution of Wabamun Minor Hockey (who was by far the largest user group) and meetings with the County, at their regular council meeting on June 6, 2017, Village Council members present voted unanimously to cease operations of the arena. Council continues to look at options, partnerships and alternatives for all Village facilities, including the arena. All memorabilia, trophies, banners etc is being kept until the final disposition of the arena has been determined.
