The Mission of Preservation Chelsea

It is our mission to preserve Chelsea as a village rich with history and charm, reflected by historic buildings, surrounding farmlands, and as found in our beautiful and vibrant village center. We aim to work through education, offering to ourselves and the community the history of Chelsea as well as the issues shaping our future. We intend actively to preserve historic landmarks and to have a voice in all issues that affect any possible de-centralization of our village. It is our intention to pursue this mission with full involvement and input from merchants and citizens of Chelsea and to act in ways that make sense for the preservation of Chelsea's charm and historic integrity while supporting a vibrant and successful downtown.

Updated Response, p 1

Updated Initial Response
To RFP DDA-001
Former Longworth Plating Site
Submitted: 7-14-2010
The Chelsea Connection, LLC
This document supersedes two previous documents submitted by Preservation Chelsea - Chelsea Connection Team (PC-CCT) on 2-18-10 (dated 2-16-10) and by The Chelsea Connection, LLC (TCC) (dated 4-15-10). It includes supplemental and/or amended information as well as much of the original text from those documents.
Late Breaking (post-printing) Updates/ Errata:
• Chelsea Area Historic Society has submitted a Letter of Intent to lease 2000 SF within The Chelsea Connection complex. Letter has been added to the Appendix.
• Conceptual floor plans of first and second floor were added to the Appendix. Plans show general location of planned uses. Final plan will change significantly as concepts are further refined. If all leases are executed as proposed, The Chelsea Connection will be more than 50% occupied.
• The enclosed proposal erroneous states that only 15-20 parking spaces could be developed along Jackson Street, east of existing Depot parking. It appears 20-25 spaces could be added easily, and up to 34 could be added if additional trees are removed.
