Jim Tomasik knows the value of an asset like the Mid South Coliseum. It is an historic landmark and should be treated as such.
When it opened in 1964, the Mid-South Coliseum was the first desegregated public building ever in Shelby County. This iconic structure was placed on the National Register of Historic Places by the US Department of Interior in 2000 and yet there are some who would tear it down rather than preserve its history. There are numerous uses for this building that can be pursued and finding a viable and worthy use for it is the course that the City of Memphis should take.
