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 36

• Develop detailed as-built underground utilities plan, including dye testing and camera inspection as required.
• Develop Schematic Design and Construction Document level plans and details as appropriate for current and upcoming phases of work.
• Implement publicity and Venture Capital campaign: The Chelsea Connection, LLC. (Summer 2010)
• Adjust phasing/ funding plan.
Phase 3 – Raising the Roof First Floor Daniels Showroom and Mack
• Confirm lease commitment.
• Prepare for tenant move-in on first floor ASAP.
• Develop temporary power and disconnect unsafe existing power.
• Restore showroom: storefront, roof, ceiling, power, and lighting.
• Replace roof of Mack Building, including insulation. (Due to compressed schedule, repair options will be considered as well).
• Underground utility repairs and upgrades: city water, sanitary, very selective concrete floor slab demo. Replace/ upgrade electrical feed, new power distribution panel.
• Develop first floor public restrooms. (Due to compressed schedule and redefined program expectations, TCC now expects to develop public restrooms in first floor of Livery, rather than first floor of Mack. At minimum, Daniels/ Mack tenant will have access to employee restroom prior to occupancy.)
• Develop Mack first floor for Market use including concrete first floor cap.
• Temporary shoring for Livery 2nd floor and Livery roof (south end). Detailed structural assessment. Additional structural scope as necessary.
• Tenant occupancy.
Phase 4 – Putting on the Glitz. Back to the Mack – Second Floor
• Develop remaining infrastructure in Mack: electrical, lighting, HVAC.
• Redevelop Mack Building second floor public space and “office” area: restrooms, open stairs, elevator (prep for future). Patio access and prep for tenant.
