Where we live: Cheektowaga


An effort to create a natural green space and play area for Theodore Roosevelt Primary students is underway and district residents are asked to help.

The school is hoping to win one of two grand prizes in the Healthy Playground Makeover Sweepstakes, sponsored by the Together Counts initiative.

Residents can help by casting votes online at and entering Theodore Roosevelt Primary.

Entries can be posted once per day through March 25.

A random drawing takes place at the end of the contest; the more entries the school has, the better its chances.

The winning schools will receive $30,000 in prizes for their wellness programs and a new playground from Playworld Systems Inc.

This week:

• The Town Board meets for a work session at 6 p.m. Tuesday in the Town Hall conference room, 3301 Broadway.
