Tioga Terrace is a quiet, friendly residential community consisting of more than 750 families.
“The Terrace,” as it is known, has been home to families since the late 1950s, and remains one of the premier residential communities in the Broome-Tioga County area. Offering a wide variety of quality housing, the Terrace continues to expand and develop.
For its part, the Civic Association promotes information sharing, fellowship and cooperation among Terrace residents, helping to protect the interests of property owners. For over 50 years, it has played an integral role in enhancing the quality of life for Terrace residents.
We hope you find our Web site helpful in learning more about our Association and community. Thanks for visiting.
Our next meeting will be on Tuesday, February 19th, 2019 at 7:00 at Park Terrace Community United Methodist Church on Glann Rd. in the Terrace. Hope to see you there!
Shared Services Building Presentation
The Town will be having a presentation on the new shared services building Wednesday, February 27, 2019 in the Owego Town Hall Boardroom at 6:30pm
and at the Dougherty County Office Building Thursday, February 28, 2019 at 6:30pm.
There will be an “Exemption Seminar” event held at the Owego Town Hall on Feb 22 at 10 am. It is mainly to discuss frequently unclaimed tax exemptions such as veterans status.
The speed limit in Tioga Terrace is 30 MPH. We have seen a great deal of speeding recently and complained to the Town of Owego. It is likely you will see more Sheriff’s Dept cars in the Terrace and they will ticket speeders. So please slow down and drive safely.
Please clean up after your dog. A few dog walkers in the Terrace have bagged their dog’s poop but left the bags in the street to be run over by cars. Bagging is a good first step but please dispose of your bags properly. Thank you

The Permit hearing for the owner of 41 Frederick, Michael McCann was held today and Linda Fuerstenburg & Meredith Bocek representing the TTCA and a few other residents attended.
Since the last hearing on Dec 6, Michael McCann managed to get the Quick Deed sale completed and recorded, removing his brother, Richard McCann and sister, Tawna Lewis, from the recorded deed. Judge Schumacher again asked Michael McCann how he plead against the Permit charges. He plead Guilty. That was a surprise as he had previously plead Not Guilty.
The judge ordered that the house be appraised for Fair Market Value and the property is to put up for sale at that price no later than January 31st of 2019. Another Hearing will be held if this does not happen by that date.
Even though this involves another delay, it is a giant step forward. Thanks to the Town of Owego Court, Judge John Schumacher, and Town Attorney, Irene Graven for all their hard work in this matter.

The hearing for Michael McCann regarding the status of 41 Frederick is scheduled for Thursday, Dec 20 at 2pm at the Town Court on Rte 434

A number of Residents and TTCA Board members attended the Preliminary Hearing on October 25 of the Town of Owego vs Michael McCann regarding the expiration of his Repair Permit without completion of the repairs on his property at 41 Frederick Dr in Tioga Terrace. Mr McCann pleaded Not Guilty and a date for the actual Hearing has been set to November 28 at 2:00pm at the Town of Owego Court on Rt 434. It is a public hearing so residents may attend but will not be afforded an opportunity to speak. Several TTCA Board members plan to attend and will provide an update.
The TTCA Board met the Apalachin Fire Commissioners Chairman, Brian Rieber and learned a great deal about the workings of our local Emergency Services Responders. We found that even though we are in the process of adding 4 new EMTs to our volunteer responders, we are still in desperate need of Ambulance Drivers. Drivers must be at least 18 years old, have a valid driver’s license, and have no convictions for arson. A physical and a background check will be required. Training is approximately 20 – 30 hours.
Weekly drills are held at Station 1 on Pennsylvania Av on Wednesdays at 7:00pm. Feel free to go and get a feel for what’s involved. Just show up and ask for any Chief . They can answer your questions.
If you are interested in volunteering for any of these positions, you can get information regarding the requirements from the Apalachin Fire Department website www.apalachinfd.com. There is a link to submit an online volunteer application.
With school back in session, drivers are reminded to stop at any red light stop signals from stopped school buses. Passing a school bus with its red lights flashing is a serious safety issue and against the law.
TTCA thanks you in advance for doing your part to help ensure that our neighborhood children are safe.
