I don't see a hot dog stand on the list, yet. Mayor Nelson also passes along news about the Super Wal-Mart:

...last Friday Walmart closed on what will be the first Super Walmart in the City of Waukesha at the West Ave. And bypass location. It will be one of the first in the country with the new logo (no hyphen and sunburst) and design features making it one of the greenest buildings in the area with over 100 skylights and lannon type stone as a nod to Waukesha's history. Groundbreaking will be in the spring with an opening in spring of 2010.
