WASHINGTON – Grant PUD accused of violating homeowner’s association rules for property use
QUINCY – The Sunland Estates Homeowner’s Association near Crescent Bar doesn’t want the public using two properties for public recreation.
The association filed a civil lawsuit against Grant PUD in Grant County Superior Court.
The association’s attorneys are claiming the utility violated a contract when they added two pieces of property to plans for public recreation.
The lawsuit involves two properties in the utility’s public recreation plans. Lot 51 is a piece of property owned by the utility, the other is the Sunland Community Park, which is owned by the homeowners association.
The utility purchased lot 51 in July 2001, and reportedly hasn’t used it until 2015, according to the complaint.
“In 2015, (the PUD) identified lot 51 as a public access point from which members of the public could access (PUD) property adjacent to the Wanapum pool of the Columbia River,” according to the plaintiff’s complaint. “(PUD) intends to develop certain project-related recreational uses in the vicinity of the Sunland Estates development.” Read more:
