Although some neighbors served up another round of opposition, the Janesville City Council approved a liquor license for the city’s first bar with outdoor volleyball.
Council members say it was a tough decision, since a small group of neighbors was very vocally against the project. Sneakers Pub and Grill will be built next to Rogan’s Shoes on Woodman Road. The city council said the investors in the redeveloped property were willing to make a number of concessions for the project, including monthly meetings with neighbors to address concerns they have about the new business.
