The William Burgess Overlay District is a railroad community reinvented through a vibrant and engaging built environment that captures the essence of the railroad's rich heritage and related cultural progressions and applies that spirit in a new and modern way. The aesthetic is intended to reinvent to social nucleus of Yulee by creating an engaging and creative place by incorporating old styles with a new feel.
In order to create the theme and aesthetic of the William Burgess District, we created a Vision Book. The Vision Book and design standards were unanimously approved by the Board of County Commissioners on December 11, 2017.
