The Town Office remains closed to the Public. Chelsea records and broadcasts public meetings that take place in the conference room at the Town Office. There is an option to watch meetings online, as well as streaming videos after they happen.

Watch meetings online via the link here, https://townhallstreams.com/towns/chelseamaine at Town Hall Streams. The service is mobile compatible, so watch meetings live from a number of devices anywhere.

While the Town Office is closed, we are working to make meetings as accessible as possible. In addition to the above option, we will be broadcasting through Zoom, which will also allow some City Staff and Councilors to attend without gathering in the Council Chambers. The link for the Zoom meeting is here,

If you have mobile device and have not previously used Zoom, you may be asked to download the free app. On a desktop, it may also take a moment to install Zoom.

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
