MARSHALL COUNTY, Okla. -- After nearly two years, Pointe Vista developers have finally taken ownership of several hundred acres of state park land. State land officials made the official transfer to Pointe Vista developers on Thursday. Teddy Safo has the details.
The transfer finally happened around 12:30 Thursday afternoon. The deal involving 550 acres of park land was closed. That acreage, otherwise known as Site 'A', includes Chickasaw Pointe Golf Course. The value of the property is an estimated $10.5 million.
Both sides admit it has been a long, tedious process because of all the red tape such as complicated paperwork involving land abstracts and developers having to assess all the property before the purchase could be finalized.
"We really have been working full pace for the past year and a half on our planning process. This will allow us to go ahead and start turning dirt." Pointe Vista operations manager Scott Fischer said.
Now the largest chuck of the deal has been completed. Developers and land officials are now working to transfer a little over 200 acres. That plot of land includes the Texoma Golf Course.
