7. If the property is platted, there shall be emblematized on the face of the plat, clearly conspicuous, a notice that the streets and drives have not been dedicated to the public, and that the streets shall be maintained by the private property owners within the subdivision, but that the streets shall always be open to police, fire, and other official vehicles of all state, federal, county, and municipal agencies;
At any time after the municipality recognizes and permits the use of such private roadway, a petition of at least sixty percent (60%) of the owners, in area, to improve and dedicate the street shall bind all of the owners thereby, to permanently improve the street or roadway in compliance with the requirements of the municipality. All other ordinances and planning commission regulations pursuant to the provisions of this article relating to subdivisions not in conflict herewith shall be applicable in such cases.
