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.

Public Comment City Council 10.26.10

My name is Cathy Bean. I live at 204 Washington Street. I am a member of The Chelsea Connection Team that has spoken before the Council on numerous occasions. We were pleased to see that a DDA report is on tonight's agenda. We hope to hear about the work of the DDA that is underway about the Longworth Property.

As you know, our proposal to the DDA for redevelopment of the entire property was declined on August 14. The Chelsea Connection Team is still working for adaptive reuse of the complex.

Our hope is to begin a productive dialog with members of the DDA to identify common ground. We will continue to provide updates on our effort to the Council.

Thank you for your interest in this important decision and in a process of working toward a win-win solution.
