Interior roads shall be designed and constructed in accordance with the specifications promulgated by the developer's engineer and approved by the Town Highway Superintendent. All interior roadways shall remain privately owned and maintained by the collective homeowners' association.

Unless otherwise specifically provided and to the extent that they are not inconsistent with this Part 4, all provisions of the Municipal Code of the Town of Thompson shall apply to this planned unit development district.
The Town Clerk is hereby authorized and directed to change the Official Zoning Map of the Town of Thompson by designating thereon the planned unit development district hereby established.
