“I love [Heathrow] because it’s a safe, gated community with tons of kids. I feel very comfortable letting them play outside in the neighborhood until dark. They go off with their friends and I don’t have to worry about them.” [Source] This is from a local Heathrow resident. And she’s not the only one. The area is close to Interstate 4 as well as a wealth of shopping, dining, and entertainment options at the Colonial Town Park. With top-rated schools, health programs, and affluent neighborhoods, Heathrow is definitely a popular destination.
Heathrow has its own Association and community and the overall structure of Heathrow is loosely structured in many respects to the typical federal, state, and county levels of government. The Heathrow master Association level is incorporated with the state of Florida and headed by its own board of directors. It features several functions including the overall enforcement of the master covenants, maintenance of the common areas, the overall functionality of the infrastructure, and adherence to the Florida Statutes regarding associations. However, it has no connection to the Heathrow Country Club.
There are 13 neighborhood associations throughout Heathrow. Each has been incorporated separately and has its own Board of Directors. They function the same as the Master Association but on a more local level. They are responsible for their own common properties and some are combined into multiple neighborhoods such as the Bridgewater neighborhood Association which covers three, Bristol Park, Chestnut Hill, and East Camden. Each neighborhood is required to have a committee comprised of 3 to 5 members who are elected by the neighborhood residents. Each member must be owners and residents of their neighborhood. There’s also a Town Council. This is comprised of all neighborhood committee chairs including 30 people and a chairman. Each neighborhood is unique and its architectural characteristics are classified by each community. It’s important for any prospective buyer to investigate the architectural rules that govern each specific neighborhood before deciding on a home.
