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.

Important "Stakeholder Meeting"--Wed, Feb 16, 4:00-5:30 p.m. at Chelsea Depot

The "Stakeholder Meeting" sponsored by the DDA is on the same day as the Chelsea First Meeting--only earlier. Those interested in what will happen in Downtown Chelsea will want to attend both. (Chelsea First meets at the Comfort Inn from 6:30-8:30 p.m.)

The DDA meeting will be held to "offer input and comments on issues such as vehicular and pedestrian traffic patterns, historic structures, existing and potential parking and possible, specific site redevelopment or development opportunities within the DDA area.

This is the first in a series of Open Houses and is open to the public at the Historic Chelsea Depot.
