  • Community Vision Summary
    The vision for the Chelsea portion of Chelsea Creek builds upon the area’s considerable history as a driver of the local and regional economy while simultaneously addressing the need to reclaim strategic locations for recreational and cultural uses by residents in nearby neighborhoods. To that end, the Municipal Harbor Plan and Designated Port Area Master Plan present strategies and guidelines designed to (1) enhance public access, (2) increase density of living-wage jobs for Chelsea residents, (3) preserve the industrial and commercial character of the waterfront and adjacent upland area, and (4) encourage water-dependent industrial uses and opportunities that contribute to the local tax base.
  • Presentation

Includes proposed policies for public access, public programming, economic development, city zoning ordinance, transportation, infrastructure improvements, climate change, and pollution.

Public meeting #1: Monday, June 11
