FLDS members have begun submitting letters of intent saying they will live in and maintain homes owned by their former land trust, called the United Effort Plan, or UEP. The letters say the occupants also will pay the property taxes on their respective homes. “We aren’t even agreeing with them,” A member said of the UEP. “We’ve just worked out a situation or something where they will stop the evictions.” Most of the Hildale properties have since been sold — often to former FLDS members or their family.
Phil Jessop said the FLDS members he sees there appear to not belong to the United Order — the sect’s upper echelon. “I do think that if they can keep their homes in Colorado City, they’re probably not in the FLDS or in the Order,” Jessop said. “They may be trying to hold on, but from what we understand, [Order members have] been instructed to move out of Colorado City.”
