Welcome to Chelsea

“Gateway to the Capital”

Commitment of taxes and tax billing is late this year

A meeting was held on September 9 to commit taxes. Due to a mathematical error, the commitment and tax rate will not be finalized until the Emergency Selectboard Meeting on Thursday September 12, 2019 after the regular Selectboard Meeting on the same night.

Tax bills will arrive in mailboxes the week of September 16

Sorry for the inconvenience.


Togus Stream conservation….interested??

Togus Stream runs along the Pittston/Randolph town line and runs east into Chelsea and Pittston.  The Chelsea Conservation Commission has formed a small committee with an interest in the conservation of this Stream.  They are looking for any interested persons from Randolph and Pittston to join them in their efforts. 

The Stream is home to alewives, trout, and Atlantic salmon. Bald Eagles and Osprey are frequent visitors to this resource.  It also can be a challenging white water canoe run at very high water in the spring. It also has a number of large freshwater wetlands which are prime waterfowl habitat.

If you are interested in helping to conserve the resources of Togus stream, please contact Alec Giffen in Chelsea at 207/215-1947 or alecgiffen@gmail.com



Chelsea has numerous vacancies on various Boards and Committees including the following:

Board of Appeals, Board of Assessment Review, Road Advisory Committee and Cemetery Maintenance Committee.

Interested residents should complete and return the volunteer form ASAP.
