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 25

community support for a project like this starts with a strong lead team and a wide base of community involvement.
PC-CCT/ TCC currently includes approximately 20 individuals engaged in the development of this proposal. As TCC begins negotiations with the City of Chelsea and DDA, our team will be expanded to include qualified members of the community to fill all necessary tasks.
Recently, we’ve added few EMU preservation students to the PC-CCT as grant writers. They are poised to begin work on grants, as soon as the DDA votes to support our proposal. A University of Michigan class entitled History Goes Green is scheduled for this fall. The class is taught by a member of TCC, and will offer opportunities to work on this historic yet sustainably designed project.
TCC is committed to building a strong, multi-faceted, intergenerational team to make this development a success. PC-CCT/TCC structure is outlined below.
