Mission Statement Organized in 2003, the Cheshire Community Action Team (CCAT) works to improve the day-to-day living environment of the Hamlet by raising awareness of community issues; fostering better communication between neighbors; youth development; and providing an informed, effective voice that links Cheshire residents to local government. The organization is open to anyone interested in preserving the history, rural character and tranquil charm of the Hamlet.

The Cheshire Community Action team has bought the historic building in downtown Cheshire, a building that was once a theatre and Grange meeting hall is now slated to become a refurbished community center for the Cheshire area, with a particular focus on family and youth activities. With the help of NYS Senator Dale Volker, CCAT received a grant of $50,000 which has been used to purchase the property “free and clear” and to secure the building against the elements in preparation for the renovation work scheduled to begin later in the year.
