A property owner may use rights-of-way offered for dedication, but unaccepted to provide access to his or her property, and may make reasonable improvements to do so. In such cases, all costs are to be borne by the property owner, builder or developer desiring access to the property; provided, no harm is done to the abutting properties or the town. The town office must be notified of any plans before any work is done in order that water line locations can be checked, and provisions for soil erosion, sedimentation control and traffic hazard prevention. Until these rights-of-way are accepted, the town considers them as private rights-of-way; the town has no responsibility for maintenance or for providing services on these rights-of-way.
