The Bloomingdale Homeowners Association is a community association chartered by residents in 1980. While the Association evolved through the years, its primary purpose is to promote neighborhood cohesion and harmony while protecting our neighborhood property values. Our new site contains a wealth of community and local area data. We have included Association information, archived and current copies of The Bloomingdale Gazette, our community newspaper, a “Frequently Asked Questions” link, contact details for internal and external agencies, and much more. With over 5,200 homes and 23,000-plus residents, we want our site to be the “go to” place for all things Bloomingdale. We are proud to introduce our new website as a place where residents can explore their community, their individual neighborhoods, and gain a better understanding of what makes Bloomingdale a great place to work, live, and call home.
You are the backbone of our Association. The programs and services offered are for you! But, these events don’t just happen. Hard work, volunteers, time and yes, money make these events happen – Money the BHA receives from you, the resident, during the annual membership drive.

The Bloomingdale Homeowners Association (BHA) adopted new Neighborhood Standards during the July 2016 board meeting with an effective date of August 1, 2016. Developed in partnership with the county’s Code Enforcement Department and based solely on existing Hillsborough County Code Ordinances, the standards are legally enforceable by county code officers.
While aimed primarily at our non-mandated neighborhoods, see list below, the standards are applicable to our mandatory HOA neighborhoods too. These standards provide residents a baseline for property maintenance and are designed to protect property values and quality of life.
Our mandated HOA neighborhoods already have enforceable deed restrictions in place that typically are more restrictive than the county ordinances that make up the new standards document. In addition, our mandatory HOA neighborhoods have violation and assessment committees, and procedures well established and working successfully.
There are two options for residents in any Bloomingdale community to submit complaints. Residents may contact county directly or the BHA. See boxed insert for contact information. Complaints in our mandated neighborhoods must first be submitted to the appropriate mandatory board or property management company.
The new standards follow the Association’s three-year undertaking to update deed restrictions and create a mandatory master association in our voluntary neighborhoods. While this effort did not pass, the BHA continued to seek ways to keep our community thriving and a place we can all be proud to call our home…hence the neighborhood standards program.
Non-Mandated neighborhoods include: Augusta Village, Bloomingdale Estates, Bloomingdale Oaks, Bloomingdale Trace, Bloomingdale West, Chadd’s Ford, Cypress Reserve, Fairway Manor, Fairway Park, Oakcrest, Sandy Creek Manors, Bloomingdale Pointe, Pine Oaks, Spring Lake, Stratford Trace, and Windsor Woods.
