Did the Sister Wives family finally move to Coyote Pass? The polygamous Brown family moved from Las Vegas to Flagstaff, Arizona in 2018 with the hopes to build new homes on their spacious property. But their plans to break ground have been delayed for more than five years as they struggled to get on the same page about whether to build one big home or several smaller homes, dealt with changes in their family structure and butted heads over how to navigate the coronavirus pandemic as a family. Keep scrolling below for more details.

What Is The Brown Family Building On Coyote Pass?

Kody had originally purchased the Coyote Pass property with the intention of living in one large house with all of his wives and his 18 children. However, all four of his spouses quickly shot down the idea.

Ultimately, to keep the peace, Kody agreed to build four separate homes on the property, but plans have been placed on hold due to the COVID-19 pandemic after experiencing another delay as it took longer than they expected to sell their four homes in Las Vegas. Prior to their move to Arizona, all four sister wives lived next door to each other in the same Vegas cul-de-sac. Since their move to Flagstaff, they had been living apart in various homes in the area, and the distance has caused tension and a divide in their polygamous family. This eventually led to Kody to split from three out of his four wives over the course of two years.

Did The Brown Family Finally Move to Coyote Pass?

Unfortunately, it seems like the Browns are not living together on Coyote Pass yet. As of March 2, 2023 there have been no building permits approved on the parcels of land Kody bought in 2018, In Touch confirmed, which means they have yet to break ground on their new homes. 

In June 2021, Janelle became the first member of the Brown family to settle down on Coyote Pass as she opted to live in an RV parked on the property.

“So I have something fun to share. I acted boldly and seized an adventure,” Janelle wrote via Instagram at the time. “Lots to do out here on the land so I figured why not be onsite. Honestly I’m alternating between extreme excitement as I’ve always wanted to try this and anxiety at all the unknown variables.”

However, Janelle announced she moved off of Coyote Pass in November 2021, shortly after Christine and Kody announced their split after 27 years of marriage.

Since their breakup, Christine sold her home in Flagstaff and moved to Utah. In July 2022, Christine sold her portion of the family’s Arizona land back to Kody for $10, according to property records obtained by Life & Style. The full cash value of the parcel of land was valued at $213,420.

Since her move from RV, Janelle rented a house in Flagstaff, In Touch confirmed in October 2022. In Touch exclusively confirmed her split from Kody in December 2022.

Meri is still based in Flagstaff in her rental home, however, she splits her time between there and her inn in Utah. Meri and Kody hinted at a split in December 2022 and confirmed their breakup the following month.

Robyn is still living in the Flagstaff home she and Kody purchased on a previous season of the show. She is Kody’s last remaining wife.

Do the Browns Owe Money on Coyote Pass?

Meri explained that the family hadn’t done “anything with the property yet” during a season 17 episode that aired in October 2022.

“It really just comes down to, in order to do anything with it, it has to be paid off,” she noted before referring to the family drama following Christine and Kody’s split. “I don’t even know. Honestly, the property is the furthest thing from my mind. Like, there’s a lot of family stuff that needs to be worked out.”

According to property tax records obtained by In Touch, Kody and his fourth wife, Robyn Brown, owe $6,711.77 ​in total for the year 2022 for four of the ​six parcels on the Flagstaff, Arizona, property as of January 2023.

Kody and Robyn has already paid off half of the property taxes for three of the parcels. The payments for those parcels are not counted as late or delinquent until June 2023.

However, there is one parcel they own is currently delinquent because no taxes ​were paid on the property in 2022. The portion of the land — which they owe $2351.62 for — is currently accruing interest and is considered late.
