As a community of 107 homeowners, we are governed by the Master Association's Declarations and By-laws.

The following are Rules, Regulations and Procedures that apply to all homeowners within the WBTS community.
Each WBTS neighborhood has its own architectural and landscaping guidelines for making changes to existing structures and grounds surrounding them. Please refer to the Declarations and By-laws of your neighborhood association before making any such changes.
The following are some commonly asked questions regarding snow removal at Wentworth By The Sea.
DOES THE SAME CONTRACTOR PLOW FOR THE MASTER ASSOCIATION AND INDIVIDUAL NEIGHBORHOOD ASSOCIATIONS?Yes. Rye Beach Landscaping (hereinafter called Rye Beach) has been our vendor since 1999. Rye Beach plows and sands Master Association areas (all roads, emergency access roads, Yellow House parking and sidewalks), and is paid by the Master Association for this. Rye Beach also plows driveways and walkways for individual homes. Individual Neighborhood Associations set snow removal criteria, contract, administer and pay Rye Beach for driveway and walkway work.
WHAT PARAMETERS ARE FOLLOWED BY RYE BEACH WHEN PLOWING?The objective is to allow travel for the majority of residents within all neighborhoods as fast as possible. Roads are first priority, driveway plowing second, and handwork (driveways, walkways and garage door aprons) third. Each neighborhood area gets done first on a rotating basis. For unusual storms (greater than 12” accumulation or snowfall rates greater than 1” per hour), performance criteria listed below may need to be adjusted upward.
WHAT ABOUT SALT/SAND?Salt and/or sand is applied to all Master Association areas at the discretion of Rye Beach and/or the Master Association to facilitate safe travel. All excess sand (when applicable) is removed from same areas during our spring cleanup. Salt/sanding of neighborhood common driveways is done solely at the request of an individual association's Board of Directors and at additional expense to that association. Salt/sanding of individual homes' driveways is available upon request to Rye Beach at the homeowner's expense.
COMMENTS or CONCERNS
The Master Association Board of Directors request that homeowner comments or concerns regarding any Master Association common area maintenance issues (including snow removal) be directed to our Property Manager (Gary Rumph) at 433-5000, instead of directly to our subcontractors. This will allow an effective working relationship with our subcontractors, and will allow us to stay on top of issues as they occur, which in turn helps our responsiveness. Comments or concerns for individual driveways and walkways should be directed to the Board of Directors of your neighborhood association.
