Richardson Flat Developers Accept Summit County’s Preliminary Injunction

Google Maps

The defendants in Summit County’s lawsuit against the developers hoping to build in Richardson Flat accepted the terms of the county’s preliminary injunction on Tuesday.


Developers Nate Brockbank and Josh Romney agreed to a preliminary injunction along the same terms as a temporary restraining order put in place on September 9th by Utah’s 3rd District Court. The decision means Brockbank, Romney, and their associates are unable to move forward with any development plans regarding disputed parcels of land in the Richardson Flat area of Summit County.


A court hearing to decide whether the restraining order would become a preliminary injunction scheduled for September 22nd is now cancelled.


The two parcels disputed in the lawsuit are known as SS-87 and SS-88 and lie just east of Park City along SR 248. Summit County alleges the developers obtained the parcels in an improper foreclosure sale with Wells Fargo Bank in February of this year and then illegally subdivided the parcels to exclude land designated as an EPA hazardous waste zone.


Brockbank and Romney had approached the town of Hideout along the Jordanelle Reservoir earlier this year about annexing about 650 acres of land into the town in order to build commercial services, office space, and additional residential units for the town.


The Hideout Town Council voted to try again to annex into Summit County last week, this time entering into a pre-annexation agreement with Brockbank for about 380 acres that excludes the parcels Summit County disputes. The council also voted for a new resolution of intent to annex the land in Summit County.


Hideout has 30 days from the passage of their resolution of intent to hold public hearings and vote on whether or not to officially continue the annexation process.
