Developer and former Republican Governor Mark Schweiker and Bernie Sauer of BCS Builders presented their plan to Council last week.

The condos will have two bedrooms and some will have three, he said,
Building plans are in the advanced stage however, changes can still be made, Schweiker said.
The former governor and the builder said it has taken several years to get to where plans could being finalized as they gained approval through the bankruptcy proceedings of the original development group.
Island View Properties, approval more than a decade ago, to construct 73 townhomes and 96 condos, went bankrupt. The case made it though the federal court system for several years. The townhome development was half-built for several years until things starting moving forward.
Schweiker said that development is almost sold out and residents have had positive reviews of the development.
Both developers said interest in the condos is high, especially with Bristol becoming a go-to event spot for out of towner’s again.
Council President Ralph DiGuiseppe said the condo plans were originally approved in 2006 and unless changes needed to be made to the original plans, no additional involvement by council is needed.
The developers said work on the project could begin as early as this year, despite anticipated supply chain issues.
