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 35

Schedule and Phasing
PC-CCT /TCC, LLC has assembled a preliminary order and timing plan on major phases. This section was substantially revised for 4-15-10 submission to account for securing a tenant for the first floor of the Daniels/ Mack Buildings. Refer to Phasing Summary of Timeline, Funding, Debt and Value for anticipated schedule and costs for each phase. Minor modifications were made in this 7-14-10 submission due to compressed and overlapping schedule for the first three phases, to accommodate prospective tenants schedule expectations. However, funding model was not updated to coincide with these changes. Changes are expected to slightly reduce cost required in first three phases.
Phase 1 – RFP Response/ Review/ Negotiation
• Develop Letter of Interest and Initial Response to RFP. (completed – three times)
• Develop conceptual floor plans, renderings, estimates and other information as requested and required by the City/ DDA in follow-up response to RFP.
• Broaden PC-CCT and TCC to include additional resources in publicity, fundraising, business analysis and development, project accounting, and contracts administration.
• Research opportunities and begin writing grant proposals for historic preservation and renovation, downtown development, economic stimulus, and brownfield site adaptive reuse. (in process, but stalled pending positive action by DDA)
• Refine cash flow model as required.
• File application for The Chelsea Connection, LLC (completed)
• TCC leases the complex from the DDA to allow Phase 2 work: additional investigation, design, selective demo and roof repair in Daniels and Mack buildings, clean-up and floor sealing in Mack building, stabilization and weather protection in Livery.
Phase 2 – Finalize, Stabilize and Publicize.
• Broaden TCC, LLC to include additional resources, in graphic arts and display, construction and construction supervision, and other areas. Finalize business relationships.
• In conjunction with City/ DDA, remove environmental hazards where possible (especially liquids). Develop remediation and containment plan for remaining hazards, and best work practices to prevent further spreading hazards or endangering workers.
• Provide temporary weather protection for roofs.
