Heathrow is a very small private community of less than 6,000 residents located in Seminole County near Longwood, 19 miles northeast of Orlando and 38 miles southwest of Daytona Beach. It is a census-designated place in unincorporated Seminole County.

And while the gated community is comprised mostly of residential units, it is also home to the Heathrow International Business Center office park and headquarters for the American Automobile Association.

Twenty-eight separately named and distinct neighborhoods are contained in the area known as Heathrow, which is only about three square miles in size. A three-tier homeowners association oversees the community:

The Heathrow Master Association, headed by a nine-member board of directors, is in charge of enforcing the overall covenants, maintenance of common areas along the main thoroughfare, Heathrow Boulevard, as well as Sawyer Lake Park, other lakes and retention ponds. It is also responsible for maintaining the functionality of the infrastructure and seeing that the community adheres to Florida Statutes regarding homeowners associations.

Under the Master Association are 12 Neighborhood Associations, each incorporated separately and governed by its own board of directors. With functions similar to the Master Association, they are responsible for common areas within each separate neighborhood or a combination of neighborhoods.

Finally, each of the 28 separate neighborhoods has a committee of three to five representatives elected by residents of those neighborhoods. Committee members, in turn, elect a chairperson, who votes on matters before the Town Advisory Committee and at annual meetings during which the boards of both the Master and Neighborhood Associations are elected. The last, but most local level, is the Neighborhood. Each Neighborhood is required to have a committee comprised of three to five members, all of which are to be elected by the neighborhood residents. As an additional requirement, all of its members must be owners-of-record and residents of the respective neighborhood. The committee chair also arranges and presides over the neighborhood annual meeting.

The 28 chairpersons from each neighborhood comprise Heathrow’s Town Advisory Council, which is also led by a chairperson. The council advises the Master Association board of directors on matters affecting the community and may request action from the Master board of directors on certain items. Town Advisory Council. The TAC meets monthly and also establishes various committees, such as community relations and safety advisory, which meet to discuss issues and report back to the entire council with findings and recommendations.

Founded in 1985, Heathrow has established a very strict set of covenants for the community. For example, each neighborhood has prescribed architectural characteristics that homeowners must agree to when purchasing a home in Heathrow. The covenants create policies for such things as paint colors, roofing treatments and driveway design. The covenants were established to create a homogeneous look and feel for each neighborhood.

Over the years, Heathrow has attracted a number of notable residents from the sports world, including professional golfers Chris DiMarco, Cliff Kresge, Matt Carroll; baseball players Tim Raines and Tim Raines Jr.; ESPN personality Lee Corso; and NBA player Dwight Howard.
