Why no arena in Northern Oakland County?

On Saturday night, Clarkston and Lake Orion will meet for the OAA Red hockey tournament title at Birmingham Ice Arena and then in all probability will meet the following Thursday in a state tournament game at their "home" rink, Detroit Skating Club in Bloomfield Hills.
It should be two compelling games between two rivals and good teams, but the matchups bring out another question for Kosmo.
Why is it that Clarkston and Lake Orion have to drive to Bloomfield Hills for a "home" rink?
The fact that there are ZERO arenas amongst the affluent communities of Clarkston, Lake Orion and Oxford is mind-boggling to Kosmo.
The K-Man just doesn't understand how their can be so many rinks in the southern part of the county since Hazel Park, Berkley, Royal Oak, Oak Park, Troy and Southfield all have their own rinks, but yet there isn't one in the north.
Oxford has to play its home games at Troy Sports Center.
It simply makes no sense that the communities can't get together and build one hockey rink for people in these towns to go to.
