With dreams of an upscale mall dashed - - though the interchange that was supposed to be contingent on the never-built mall is open, with fancy roundabouts galore (see photos below) - - how else do you report this development 'development'?
A Walmart supermarket and discount store and Sam's Club store are being proposed for Oconomowoc's Pabst Farms site, where city officials had once hoped to see a regional mall developed.I took these photos about a year-and-a-half ago:
|I like the bike path (r). But that sign? Better slow down to interpret that.|
|Roundabouts - - four in all - - all about. The brickwork and landscaping are lovely.|
|Where's the holiday shopping traffic last Saturday afternoon? Oh, I forgot. The mall never got built.|
