Demolition Work To Start At Pointe Vista Site

Posted: Updated:

MARSHALL COUNTY, OK -- Officials with Pointe Vista say another step in the demolition process at the old Lake Texoma Lodge could happen later this month.

Pointe Vista contracted with a company to remove asbestos from the old cabins, and once that is finished, a separate demolition company will begin knocking down some of the existing structures later this month, says operations manager Ryan Chapman.

Chapman says Pointe Vista is still within its timeline under its contract with the state. Pointe Vista bought the old lodge area back in 2008.

Under the contract, the developers are supposed to construct a hotel by May 2014 and they are currently working on purchasing some extra acreage from the state, says Rep. Tommy Hardin, R-Madill.
