As Project Manager for another firm, Ms. Anderson (now a partner at Anthem, LLC) coordinated efforts to define an implementation and funding strategy to redevelop the Palacios waterfront beginning with the Historic Pavilion.
For decades, “The Old Pavilion” was an attraction for all of Southeast Texas as community gathering space, fishing pier, and dancehall. Past hurricanes have battered and destroyed the Pavilion several times over the 20th century, and the community was finally prepared to rebuild on a new, coastal location.
The strategy for the pavilion was focused incorporating community input to design a long-term vision for the waterfront. Ms. Anderson worked with the economic development corporation, the Port of Palacios, and County officials to articulate a plan that positioned the Pavilion redevelopment as a catalyst for the revitalization of the entire area’s tourism and fishing industries.
