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.

“After enjoying doing business in Chelsea for many years, I appreciate the opportunity to help Chelsea First accomplish its goals of enabling Chelsea businesses to work together and stand apart from other communities,” said Matt Friedman, co-owner of Michigan-based Tanner Friedman Strategic Communications. “I plan to add perspective, based on how other successful organizations are telling their stories and communicating their brands in new, cost effective ways.”
