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.

Minimizes heat load/gain: Extensive wall and roof insulation. Energy efficient replacement/restored windows. Western exposure window canopies. Solar sympathetic roof garden addition on Livery: maximizes winter solar gain/ minimizes summer gain.
• Simple but efficient HVAC systems. Promote natural ventilation when possible. In-floor radiant heat for apartments.
• Green roofs on Livery and Showroom reduce cooling load and storm water runoff.
• Considering storm water collection and reuse from a portion of roof, reducing city water consumption and storm water runoff.
• Energy Star appliances. Energy efficient lighting.
• Clerestory windows on Livery apartments promote day lighting, natural ventilation.
Material Selection (proposed):
• Locally acquired, sustainably harvested lumber where possible – primarily hardwood trim.
• New concrete floors on Livery first and second floors, Mack first floor. Polished and/or stained for attractive, durable, finish. Although high in embodied energy, concrete is available locally, recyclable and very durable. Concrete doubles as fire barrier for apartments.
• Recycled materials in selective locations: reuse/ repurposing of Second floor Mack Building office cabinets and trim.
Relationship to Natural Environment:
• New shared rooftop garden on Livery.
• New rooftop patio above Showroom.
• Open air feel through use of garage doors in Mack first floor - in temperate weather.
