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 26

TCC has continued to add new members, and qualify additional members of the team for key roles.
Construction/ Project Management: TCC has discussed in-kind shares partnerships with several construction professionals, and expects to add additional members shortly after the DDA moves forward with negotiations with TCC.
TCC has contacted several attorneys with specialties in preservation work, grants and tax credits. We expect to finalize selection shortly after the DDA expresses serious interest in negotiating with TCC.
Discussions are ongoing with several sub-contractors that would be interested in exchanging services for a share in the project equity (in-kind services shares). One such firm is Koch Masonry, who has worked extensively throughout Chelsea, Dexter and Ann Arbor, including landmark structures like the McKune House and the Clocktower complex.
