Del Webb–the nation’s leading builder of active adult communities for those 55 and older–has announced its groundbreaking and revealed its entrance in Nassau County master-planned community Wildlight.

Opening early 2022, Del Webb Wildlight will showcase a gated luxe neighborhood that will include up to 660 single-family and villa homes offering active and resort-style amenities for exploration and recreation spanning approximately six acres. Amenities include a 12,000-square-foot amenity center designed for group activities and gatherings, resort-style and lap pool, tennis and pickleball courts, dog park, and 10 miles of walking trails connecting to the Wildlight YMCA and neighborhood restaurants.

Residents will enjoy Wildlight’s Florida Lowcountry lifestyle with downtown Fernandina, Amelia Island beaches, and downtown Jacksonville located 20 minutes away from the community.

And in future news, in 5 years, these new residents will start complaining about too much growth in Nassau County.

And in a few years the extra growth’s consequent expenses (infrastructure, traffic, services, etc.) will outpace the development fees and property taxes collected. Amelia Island will be the most impacted. All new residential development is a legal Ponzi scheme, with developers making bank and everyone else left holding the (empty) bag.

Yes, I agree with all of you, as Fernandina Beach, Yulee, and Nassau Counties growth is totally out-of-control. I moved here from S Florida just 15 years ago and thought I would live out the rest of my life here, but with the growth spurt we’ve had here in the last 5 years, I was better off staying in S Florida, as there are so many more opportunities there to make money.

And I just can’t wait for the 3k plus cars that will be on SR 200 in the next couple years. Sad to say but Yulee has become a “Bedroom Community”.
