To do that the school district would need to purchase land.

At the August 21, 2019 meeting of the Franklin School Board, Director of Business Services for the school district said Franklin is exploring purchasing 223 acres of vacant land at 8903 W. Ryan Road. Many future residents would live in the area because there’s a good deal of open land.

One elementary school requiring 20-30 acres would be built at the site and possibly a second elementaryschool. Athletic fields and recreational facilities could also be placed on the site that is currently owned by the Milwaukee Archdiocese.

Milzer would not comment on what Franklin has offered to purchase but said the land is listed at $4.495 million.

A motion to authorize the school board to purchase the site was approved.
