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 6

regarding the redevelopment of the Former Longworth Plating Site. To simplify review of the TCC proposal, we have compiled the information into a single document. See Recent Background on Proposed Redevelopment and RFP DDA-001 in the Appendix for additional discussion.
Although the attached proposal includes numerous refinements, our proposal has not changed substantially since our 4-15-10 submission. TCC, LLC continues to believe that our plan is in the best long-term interest of the City of Chelsea and its residents. Our goals are to:
• Connect Downtown and Clocktown
• Create a new downtown Chelsea destination
• Maximize fiscal responsibility for the City of Chelsea
See A Discussion on Mission, Values and Vision in the Appendix for more comprehensive discussion on shared values and goals.
Please let us know (see contact information on p. 17) if you need any additional information of have additional questions.
