Janesville city council supports economic development

Despite a negative recommendation from city staff, the council Monday night voted unanimously to rezone the vacant Rock Theater building on Newport Avenue.  City council member Brian Fitzgerald says the location is a business site needing a business.  Council Member Sam Liebert says a top priority is job creation, and if rezoning the site makes it more usable, the city needs to be open minded.  Developer Jim Grafft says it's tough marketing a site when there's no guarantee what business might be allowed.  He expects tenant to be businesses catering to other businesses.
