POINTE VISTA TIMELINE

2006

In November, The Commissioners of the Land Office selects Pointe Vista Development, LLC to redevelop a portion of Lake Texoma State Park. The state agrees to sell a portion of the park to Pointe Vista for $14.6 million. Pointe Vista announces plans including a four-star hotel, condominiums, a water park and upscale shops. The development group is led by Chaparral Energy CEO Mark Fischer and Aubrey McClendon, founder of American Energy Partners, LP. In need of extensive repairs, Lake Texoma State Lodge closes in December.

2007

U.S. Reps. Mary Fallin and Tom Cole sponsor a bill to clear up the ownership of 227 acres of Lake Texoma State Park land that the federal government had a claim to, further paving the way for private development. The legislation transferred Lake Texoma shoreline from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to the Oklahoma Department of Tourism.

2008

The Tourism Department enters into a contract with Pointe Vista to sell an additional 1,022 acres of parkland at Lake Texoma known as Area C.

2009

Pointe Vista tells Marshall County officials that the development will generate more than $500 million in new tax revenue for the area over 25 years. Marshall County officials approve a more than 2,000-acre tax increment financing district for the Pointe Vista area, to help generate up to $330 million to fund water, sewer and other infrastructure improvements on the site.
