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.

Next public meeting to display options by consultants to the DDA

Consultants to the DDA, Deardorff & Poley, will present various concepts of the downtown comprehensive plan at an open house on Wednesday, May 25, in the McKune Room at the library from 7-9 p.m.. Unlike regular DDA meetings, this will not be videotaped. (See comments of previous comments on the link in the right column of the page.)

This is the third of four public meetings and a way to understand what is underway in our community. Please attend if possible and provide input to the ideas presented.

The regular DDA meeting will be held this Thursday, May 17, at the McKune Room, from 7:30 a.m. to 9 a.m. Public comment is invited toward the end of the meeting. These meetings are videotaped and can be viewed on Channel 18 on both Tuesdays and Saturdays at 9 a.m. and 7 p.m.
