A.   Every provision of this title shall be construed liberally to achieve the purposes outlined in section 12-1-1 of this chapter.
   B.   Whenever the requirements of this title differ from those of any statute, lawfully adopted ordinance or regulation, easement, covenant, or deed restriction, the more stringent requirement shall prevail. Thus, in accordance with state law 1 , whenever this title imposes higher standards than the county subdivision ordinance, said higher standards shall supersede the county regulations in the unincorporated territory located within the village's subdivision jurisdiction.
   C.   This title is not intended to abrogate any easement, covenant, deed restriction, or any other private agreement or restriction; provided, that where the provisions of this title are more restrictive or impose higher standards or regulations than such easement, covenant, deed restriction, or other private agreement or restriction, the provisions of this title shall govern. Where the provisions of the easement, covenant, deed restriction, or private agreement or restriction impose duties and obligations more restrictive, or higher standards than the requirements of this title or the determinations of the village in approving a subdivision or in enforcing this title, and such private provisions are not inconsistent with this title or determinations hereunder, then such private provisions shall be operative and supplemental to this title and determinations made hereunder. The village does not purport to enforce any such private provisions not reflected on the plat and its supporting documents unless there is expressed in the nature of the document and the approval process an intent to give the village enforcement rights over same.
   D.   If any section, subsection, sentence, clause, phrase, or word of this title is for any reason held to be invalid, such decision shall not affect the validity of the remaining portions of this title. The village hereby declares that it would have adopted this title and any chapter, section, subsection, clause, phrase, or word hereof without incorporation in this title of any such invalid chapter, section, subsection, clause, phrase or word.
