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.

Core Values and Resulting Goals:
A Discussion on Mission, Values and Vision of all stakeholders, (including The Chelsea Connection, The Chelsea DDA and The City and Community of Chelsea) as it relates to the redevelopment of the Former Longworth Plating site is included in Supporting Information. This supercedes discussion previously included in the Letter of Intent or Additional Information.
Worth noting: Values and goals stated in PC-CCT/TCC responses are echoed in reports released in the Chelsea First initiative, far more so than the need for additional parking.
