Demolition of the Cedar Motel and RV Park in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, began in earnest this week after area law enforcement agencies used the buildings for Special Weapons And Tactics training, the Coeur d’Alene Press reported.

“We let them use the property and they did a series of training runs,” said Duane Hagadone, CEO of the Hagadone Corp., which recently purchased the property.

Hagadone said he has been trying to buy the property for several years because it adjoins The Coeur d’Alene Resort Golf Course, and he wanted to clean it up.

“The first step was to buy it and clean it up,” he said. “I am confident that will be accomplished by the first of May.

“I have no immediate plans for the site, but it does adjoin the golf course,” he said. “An eight or 10-story building overlooking the golf course and lake would be good right there.”
