About Barnsley Way
The Barnsley Way Community currently consists of 103 cluster homes and is located within Ward 4A of the City of Broadview Heights where residents utilize City services such as the police, fire and service departments. The sub-association is one of two homeowner/cluster associations within the framework of the MacIntosh Farms Community Association and by declaration is subject to the Master’s rules and regulations.
Some of the streets and roadways within Barnsley Way are private (Association Roads) and are owned, maintained and serviced by our association. Association Roads include Sweet Bay Court, Archer Court, Sexton Court and Brooks Court. The remaining streets are duly dedicated public streets and are maintained and serviced by the City. They are Barnsley Way, Boxwood Court, Gates Court and Covington Court. Our entrance and the pool and pavilion at Barnsley Way are under the direction and control of the Master Association.
The community is governed by The Barnsley Way Homeowners Association Inc., a Non-Profit Ohio Corporation that is controlled by ORC Chapter 5312 Ohio Planned Community Law as well as our original and subsequently amended Declaration, Code of Regulations and Handbook. We elect five homeowners to serve on our Board of Trustees. Board members serve without compensation and are responsible for the affairs of the association on behalf of all Barnsley Way homeowners.
