The Chelsea Fire Department has begun a major renovation project for the Chelsea Firefighters Memorial that is situated outside the local fire alarm headquarters.
Chelsea Fire Capt. Michael Thompson points to the stone plate marking the original opening date of the memorial. The firefighters have launched a renovation project to restore the site.
Fire Captain Michael Thompson said the
memorial was first erected in 1972 and there has been no refurbishing at the
site since that time.
“Our goal is to revamp the entire site,”
said Thompson, a 32-year veteran of the department. “We will erect granite
walls with the names of our deceased firefighters.”
City Manager Tom Ambrosino met with Deputy
Chief Michael Masucci to discuss the project. Ambrosino gave the official
go-ahead for the project.
Seeking to raise monies to defray the cost
of the project, the firefighters will hold a “Chili Selloff” fundraiser this
Saturday, April 6 at the Mystic Brewery, Chelsea.
“Bryan Greenhagan (owner of the brewery) has
graciously invited us to sell chili from 1 to 9 p.m. on that day, with the
proceeds going to the rebuilding of the memorial,” said Thompson.
Chris Flahive and his team of chefs from the
Chelsea Yacht Club will team up with the firefighters to cook up 40 gallons of
chili for the event.
April 13 at the New Brown Jug, owner Michael Matrinko will host a fundraiser
during which 20 percent of all food sales will go the firefighters memorial
fund. There will be a raffle drawing for a $10,000 cash prize.
Every year on the first Sunday of June, the
firefighters hold ceremonies at the site. Thompson is hopeful that the project
will be completed by that date.
“I’m very excited to see this come to
fruition,” said Thompson. “With the help of the citizens of Chelsea, we’re
going to meet our goal and get it done.”
the project can be sent to the Chelsea Firefighters Memorial Fund, P.O. 505616,
Chelsea, MA 02150).
A major $9.5 million improvement project for
the one-mile stretch of Broadway from City Hall Avenue to the Revere line could
get underway by the spring of 2022.
On Thursday, March 21, the Massachusetts
Department of Transportation held a public hearing on the preliminary design
plans for the roadway reconstruction. Although the state officials and
engineers outnumbered the residents in attendance for the meeting, there was a
good amount of information provided on the shape, scope, and timeline of the
road reconstruction project.
“We are finishing the 25 percent design
stage,” said Larry Cash, the MassDOT project manager. “After this hearing, we
will be advancing to the final design stage.”
The purpose of the project is to increase
safety for pedestrians, bicyclists, and vehicles along the Broadway corridor
and intersecting streets in the city, according to Weston and Sampson engineer
Larry Keegan. He said there will be new turn lanes, additional vehicle stacking
room, and traffic signals at the project intersections allowing for the safer
turning of vehicles and improved safety for pedestrians and bicyclists. The
plans also include dedicated bicycle lanes through the one-mile stretch.
“There have been 97 collisions over a
three-year period” along that portion of Broadway,” said Keegan. “That is above
the state average.”
Keegan pointed to poor intersection layout,
outdated traffic signals, and deficient pedestrian, bicycle, and public transit
accommodations as being among the chief culprits for the high number of
accidents. All of those issues will be addressed during the roadway
reconstruction, he said.
In addition to the repaving of the road
itself, a major component of the work includes new sidewalks and improved
Sidewalk improvements will mean the removal
of some trees.
“The existing trees are old and unhealthy,
lifting up the sidewalks themselves so that they are not ADA (Americans with
Disabilities Act) compliant,” said Keegan.
Other areas that will get major upgrades are
the MBTA bus stops along the route. Keegan noted that there is deterioration of
pavement and pavement markings from years of use along the mile of Broadway,
and that the deterioration is especially pronounced at the bus stops.
The proposed project will require permanent
and temporary easements from adjacent property owners, but Cash said those
easements are either temporary to allow for construction work along the road,
or are for the installation or minor regrading of sidewalks.
As with any project that involves ripping up
pavement and sidewalks to make way for improvements, there will be traffic and
construction impacts once work gets underway.
But Keegan said the plan is to keep
disruptions to a minimum and traffic flowing as easily as possible.
“No detours are anticipated at this time,”
During the day, the plan is to have a single
lane of traffic closed and have the traffic managed by police. At night, there
will be two-way traffic, according to Keegan. Access to schools, businesses,
and residences will be kept open as much as possible, he added.
Chelsea resident John Gunning asked if the
bus stops would remain in the current locations and if there would be
improvements to the bus shelters.
Keegan said engineers will be working with
the MBTA during the next phase of design to address some of those issues.
“The T wants certain things and the city
wants certain things (for the bus stops),” he said. “We are looking at
different options at this point.”
Dunning said he would like to see fresh, new
bus shelters and stops that will complement the surrounding area and completed
Cash said design,
permitting, and right of way acquisition for the project will continue through
2019 and 2020 with construction anticipated to start in the spring of 2022.

A Lynn teen, who was originally from
Chelsea, pleaded guilty March 7 as his trial was set to begin on charges that
he opened fire during a party three years ago, killing 19-year-old Pablo
Villeda and injuring six others.
Emanuel Marrero, 19, pleaded guilty to second-degree murder in connection with Pablo Villeda’s March 6, 2016, shooting death, as well as six counts of armed assault with intent to murder and related charges for injuries suffered by six other young people.
Pablo Villeda was killed in an early morning teen party on March 6, 2016 held at a vacant apartment on Washington Avenue. On Thursday, March 7, Emanuel Marrero pleaded guilty in court to his murder.
Judge Linda Giles imposed the mandatory sentence
of life in prison, ordering that he be eligible for parole after 15 years and
that his sentences on the non-fatal shootings be served concurrently. Had he
chosen to go to trial, the defendant – who was 16 at the time of the homicide –
would have faced a first-degree murder charge.
“We accepted this plea because it delivers a
significant measure of accountability for the defendant’s actions, which took
Pablo’s life just as it was ready to begin,” District Attorney Rachael Rollins
said. “It also considers all the potential outcomes at trial and on appeal, as
well as the defendant’s age at the time of the homicide. Nothing we do can
bring Pablo Villeda back to his loving family, but I hope this final result can
at least provide them with closure to this tragic event.”
Chief Brian Kyes said he hopes the prison
sentence will bring closure to the family on what was a tragic night in Chelsea
three years ago.
“This was certainly a tragic night for
everyone involved and one that none of us will soon forget,” said Kyes. “We
truly hope that the imposition of this prison sentence by the Suffolk County
Superior Court will bring some sense of solace to the family of Pablo Villeda
that they absolutely deserve. Senseless acts of violence like this have
no place in our neighborhoods and we will continue to work with our community
partners to prevent tragedies like this from ever occurring again.”
Chelsea Police responded to 120 Washington
Ave. in the early morning hours of March 6, 2016, for multiple calls reporting
a disturbance at a party held inside a vacant apartment. They arrived to find seven people, ranging in
age from 15 to 22, suffering gunshot wounds.
Pablo was rushed to the hospital but succumbed to his injuries; the
surviving victims were treated at Whidden Memorial Hospital and Massachusetts
Assistant District Attorney Julie Higgins of
the DA’s Homicide Unit was prepared to introduce evidence and testimony showing
that the defendant brought a .40 caliber handgun to the party, flaunting it to
several other attendees. At some point, the evidence would have shown, the
defendant confronted the victim and opened fire. Pablo was mortally wounded and
six other people were struck, and fortunately survived their injuries. The
defendant fled the scene but was identified in the course of an exhaustive
investigation by Chelsea Police detectives and the Suffolk County State Police
The defendant was represented by attorney
The City Council and the School Committee
have voted to name the new Clark Avenue Middle School after long-time School
Committeeman and former Williams School Principal Morris ‘Morrie’ Seigel.
At Monday night’s City Council meeting, the matter was brought up for a vote on a request forwarded from the School Committee – who had voted to approve the move.
The late Morrie Seigel pictured here in May 2013 when he served as the Chief Marshal of the Memorial Day Girl Scout Parade. The new Clark Avenue Middle School has been named after him.
The Council voted unanimously on the
proposal by City Manager Thomas Ambrosino to dedicate the Clark Avenue Middle
School to the late educator and community member. It will now be known as the
Morris H. Seigel Clark Avenue Middle School.
City Council members spoke fondly about
“Mr. Seigal was not only a wonderful person
for the city of Chelsea, he was a great gentleman,” said Councilman Calvin
Brown. “When he wasn’t in his professional attire, he had his Chelsea jacket
on, his Chelsea hat on, displaying his pride.”
Said Councillor Giovanni Recupero, “There’s
only one [way] to describe Mr. Seigal–great person. If anyone deserves this,
it’s Mr. Seigal. He was the teacher of my kids for many years. For 40 years, I
knew the gentleman and he was a very nice person.”
Seigel was an educator in the City and
served as the principal of the Williams School. He was a School Committeeman
for 29 years, and a youth leader at the Chelsea YMHA.
In 2013, as a noted veteran, he was the
Chief Marshal of the Memorial Day Girl Scout Parade.
So much happens within every municipality that needs to be shared: upcoming events, new initiatives, important updates, celebrations of success. And there’s myriad ways in which each department of City Hall interfaces with the public in routine ways, from applications for parking permits to business licenses, to simple correspondence to the uniforms of Department of Public Work employees repairing the streets. Inherent in all of this communication is a message about how the municipality functions. Each represents an opportunity to say something about the City of Chelsea itself.
The new Chelsea City Seal features a more appropriate figure and a consistent design.
To make the most of these
opportunities, the City of Chelsea has just released a Style Guide that details
the specific graphic style for all communications from the ten City Hall
departments and nearly twenty boards and commissions. The goal of the
effort is to establish a consistent brand identity that’s professional, clear,
and attractive. The guide details typography, colors, photography and
formatting that together create a distinctive look for City Hall’s print and
digital materials. For administrative staff at City Hall, a suite of templates
facilitate the quick creation of regularly needed materials within the
established style. The refreshed documents include letterhead and envelopes,
agendas and minutes, business cards and brochures, forms and flyers, reports
and PowerPoint slide decks.
The underlying goal of
the project is that quality, consistent design will demonstrate a unified voice
whenever expressed by an agent of Chelsea’s city offices. Quality design
demonstrates competence and professionalism. Through a clear graphic identity
the public will be able to better recognize services provided by municipal
Over the past eight
months, a team of City Hall staff representing a variety of departments worked
with design consultant, Catherine Headen, to develop the guide. After
reviews, working sessions and a special event with City Hall staff the
completed Guide and templates are formally released this week.
A major aspect of the
work was refining of the City Seal. Over the decades numerous changes had
led to an evolution of the design, drifting the illustration away from the
original as detailed in the banner hanging Chelsea’s City Council
Chambers. When the team began, nearly a dozen different images were in use
as a City Seal across municipal departments. The design details had
changed so significantly that the group was surprised to discover lost elements
prescribed within the City Charter: “The following shall be the device of the
corporate seal of the city: A representation within a circle of a shield
surmounted by a star, the shield bearing upon it the representation of an
American Indian chief and wigwams; at the right of the shield, a sailboat such
as was formerly used for ferriage; at the left of the shield, a view of the
city and a steam ferryboat; under the shield, the word “Winnisimmet;” around
the shield, the words “Chelsea, settled 1624; a Town 1739; a City 1857.”
The unveiling of the new look with take place over time. City staff will
continue to use the print materials already on hand but will use the new
templates for all their future materials. The new style is intended for the
main City Hall departments and doesn’t extend to the City’s Police and Fire
departments or to the schools.
A Chelsea firefighter fighting the stunning blaze created by Pollo Campero in Park Square on Sunday night. The popular restaurant was a total loss, but owners said they intend to re-build.
Heavy smoke poured from the popular Pollo Campero restaurant in Park Square on Sunday night, with firefighters facing treacherous conditions that forced their evacuation numerous times as they tried to put out the stunning fire.
In the end, crews battled and made quick
work of it – getting it out within an hour.
Chief Len Albanese said it is still under
investigation this week, and that it was a total loss.
“The fire is still under investigation;
however, I can report at this time that it appears that the fire started in a
concealed space within a wall, then traveled to the loft space above the
ceiling where the fire was allowed to burn for some time before breaking out
and activating the Fire Alarm system,” he said. “This would account for the
major fire condition on arrival even though the building had a working fire
alarm system. Also, there were no sprinklers within the structure. The fire
remains under investigation for a definitive cause that will be reported upon
There were no civilian injuries, but one
firefighter was injured.
On Sunday evening, at 11:40 p.m. Chelsea
Fire Alarm received an alarm of fire from Box 1134 for the Pollo Campero
restaurant located at 115 Park St. First arriving companies from Chelsea E2 and
L1 under the command of Capt. Phil Rogers reported heavy smoke showing on
arrival from the rear of the building. C4 Deputy Wayne Ulwick arrived
on scene assuming command and immediately ordered the Working
Fire. Due to the heavy smoke and reports of heavy fire within the interior
of the building, a Second Alarm was requested bringing companies from Revere,
Everett, Boston and MassPort to the scene. Crews were ordered out of the
building several times due to conditions rapidly deteriorating from
heavy fire conditions within the structure forcing firefighters to attack the
fire with defensive operations using blitz guns, hand lines
and ladder pipes
The fire was brought under control within an
The Boston Sparks Club under the command of
President Paul Boudreau responded to the scene supplying Re-Hab and
refreshments for the firefighters. Chelsea Police also provided traffic and
crowd control during fire. Crews from Medford and Boston provided mutual aid
during the fire.
Chief Albanese said it was a defensive fight
for firefighters because the structure was too far along to be saved.
Nevertheless, owners are determined to rebuild.
“It was determined that the fire was well
involved within the structure, and crews were ordered out of the building and
proceeded with a defensive fire attack,” he said. “Given the time of day, a
closed business and no reports of occupants, this was the safest course of
action given that very early on it was apparent that this building could not be
saved. Members of Fire Prevention are working with the ownership, who reported
to us that they intend to rebuild as soon as possible.”
Ryan Dion has fond memories of his days
growing up in Melrose and traveling to Route 1 to enjoy a steak at the Hilltop.
“Route 1 is my old stomping ground,” said
Dion, who graduated from Melrose High (Class of 1999) and UNH with a degree in
Business and Hospitality. “The old
Hilltop was family dinner most Saturday nights. I remember waiting two hours for
seating in Sioux City, Kansas City, and Dodge City. I use to run around the old
phone booths with my brothers.”
Dion is now the chief operating officer of
110 Grill, which just celebrated its grand opening with a ribbon cutting
ceremony at its newest location on Route 1 in Saugus.
The 110 Grill in Saugus is the restaurant
group’s 18th location and it sits majestically on the former site of the
legendary Hilltop Steakhouse. The ribbon-cutting ceremony featured the lighting
of the iconic Hilltop cactus.
Asked to describe 110
Grill, Dion replied, “110 Grill is upscale, casual, American cuisine in a
trendy, casual atmosphere.”
110 Grill features
steaks, seafood, a variety of sandwiches, salads, and appetizers, as well as
monthly rotating specials that the chefs create.
Appetizers range from $7
to $15. Entrees range from $14 to $30.
Why have the 110 Grill
restaurants – now in three states (Massachusetts, New Hampshire, and New York)
proven to be so popular with diners?
“I believe it’s three
things – great food, great service, and the great ambiance,” said Dion. “What I
love about our concept is being upscale casual, you can come in here in a
business suit and have a $32 ribeye and a bottle of Duckhorn Cabernet, or you
come in shorts and sandals from the beach, sit at the bar and have a burger and
a beer. Either way, you fit in.”
The restaurants seats 155
persons, with a private function room available for lunch, dinner, and cocktail
“We’re absolutely excited
to get to know the local folks,” said Dion. “We have a great crew working here
from Saugus, Melrose, Revere, Lynn, and other area communities.”
110 Grill appears destined to be a huge hit on the local restaurant scene.
