The most magnanimous economic development project in the history of SE Wisconsin!…….ummmm, Milwaukee County!……….uhhh, Franklin!……..hmmm, Rawson Avenue!……………..The Fountains of Franklin, after months and months and months and months and months and months of……..some activity have exuberantly announced that the site will have:
1) A DQ Chill and Grill. Or is it a DQ Grill and Chill? Anyway, cue the studio audience;
2) An Azana Spa and Salon.
Yeh, yeh, yeh, super, that’s all fine and swell.
Now, is it too much to ask when the groundbreaking will actually be for these, AHEM, projects that all of Franklin is on pins and needles anxiously awaiting?
Or do we have to wait months and months and months and months for that, too?
And if you’re keeping score at home, fans:

UPDATE ON 6/1 @ 10:00 PM:
Let's not forget CVS Pharmacy, Serenity Tan and Snap Fitness. Are they going to open, and if so, on schedule?
Late last month, Greg Kowalski reported that discussion at a Common Council meeting was that the development was not headed in an upscale direction and certain permits were denied. So again, what in the world is going on there, if anything, and how long will it be before something substantial starts operating?
